Ingredients in non alcoholic Christmas Punch

So, let’s say you’re entertaining this holiday season and you need a fun drink. Alex and I are all about cocktails, but at the same time we love serving something that everyone can enjoy! So, we created this non alcoholic holiday punch recipe (a sort of mocktail, if you will). It’s so beautiful, and you can make it alcoholic too if you’d prefer!

Here are the components in this naturally sweet holiday punch recipe:

  • Unsweetened iced tea: it’s got a clean, pure tea flavor
  • Pomegranate juice: adds a naturally sweet tang to the iced tea
  • Fresh orange & lime juice: fresh citrus juice brings it up a notch
  • Sparkling cider: brings a naturally sweet flavor and a tinge of bubbles

Notes on flavor and serving

A few important notes on this non alcoholic Christmas punch before you jump to the recipe below:

  • This recipe is essentially a pomegranate iced tea that’s flavored and served like holiday punch. It’s naturally sweet and it’s just sweet enough to be the perfect fit for eating with a holiday meal.
  • It’s the perfect compliment to food. While we love cocktails, but find that their flavor is so strong that they compete with food. This holiday punch recipe is the perfect naturally sweet drink to enjoy with a meal: it’s flavor will compliment but not overwhelm your food! It’s perfect for a holiday party.
