The great thing about punch is that it’s really hard to mess it up!  This punch can be made for the grown ups or the kids (2 recipes below)!  It uses Cranberry Cocktail as a base with either soda!

You can definitely tailor this punch to your own liking, if you prefer a less sweet punch, replace the soda with sparkling water.  You can easily change it up with flavored Cranberry cocktail such as pomegranate!

My husband loves to add a little grapefruit cocktail to give it a little extra tang… the possibilities are endless!

  1. Really nice apple juice, it is winter now, I think I would make this when it is summer. Just bookmark it. Thank you.5 stars

  2. I would love to make this for an upcoming New Years party, especially because I want to provide both alcoholic and non-alcoholic versions of a punch. I do need clarification, though. For the “sparkling drink”, does that mean a sparkling wine such as Asti Spumante? And for the lemon lime soda , what size bottles?

    1. The soda was a 2L size, you can use a little bit more or less depending on personal taste. And yes, any sparkling wine such as Asti Spumante would work perfectly! Enjoy!
