This cranberry orange punch is a festive (nonalcoholic) drink that is perfect for the holidays! Whether you need a delicious drink to serve with Thanksgiving dinner or a Christmas party refreshment, this punch is a crowd pleaser! The holidays are in full swing! Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s – those six weeks tend to be filled with multiple celebratory occasions, special gatherings and big meals. So, you’re likely to need a good drink option at some point during that time. And, this cranberry orange punch is perfect for any of those occasions. It has great fall/winter flavors that work well for any holiday season meal and since it’s nonalcoholic, it’s a drink all ages can enjoy! Plus, with just 3 key ingredients this punch is SO easy to make! The 3 main ingredients for the punch are orange juice, cranberry juice, and Sprite…but with a special twist. For this, we used the new Sprite Winter Spiced Cranberry. This is a new twist on the usual Sprite Cranberry holiday favorite with the addition of warm spice notes, delivering some extra essence of the holidays. YUM! Then we also used Simply Cranberry and Simply Orange as we’re big fans of the Simply beverage products. They believe the the best things in life are made simply. And, simple (yet delicious) is definitely what you get with this holiday punch.
How to Make Cranberry Orange Punch
There really is nothing too complicated about making this drink at all. The only thing that takes even a teensy bit of time is prepping the fresh fruit. I think for a holiday punch, having the colors and textures of the fresh fruit really look prettier and more festive in the dispenser. So, start prepping your punch by washing and slicing 1-2 oranges. The round slices look lovely in the punch bowl/drink dispenser. You’ll also want to include 1-2 cups of fresh cranberries in the punch. If you’d like some extra of the cranberry flavor to come out into the drink, you can cut some of the cranberries in half. Do keep in mind though that they have small seeds which you might want to take out before tossing the cut cranberries into the bowl.
And speaking of bowl, you’ll need to decide on what type of container you’ll use for your holiday punch. With the cranberries and orange slices floating on top, this recipe would look beautiful in a punch bowl. The only downside to that is that people than get the fresh fruit in their glasses as they ladle the punch in…and not everyone wants to deal with that as they try to drink. So, I prefer serving drinks like this in dispenser with a spout instead. Once you have your fruit washed and cut, you’ll place your fruit into the dispenser of your choice. Then, you’ll pour in the 3 liquids (at basically a 1-1-1 ratio). The 2 liter of Sprite is just slightly more fluid ounces than the Simply beverages. To fill our dispenser, I used the entire bottles of each. That makes it perfect for a holiday party, giving you about 20 8oz servings.
I poured the two juices in first and then the Sprite. Give everything a gentle stir mix the flavors. Then, add in two cinnamon sticks. The end result is a delicious punch that’s perfect for any holiday season occasion! It’s so pretty and SOOoooo good! The hint of cinnamon is really good and gives it an extra delicious holiday feel! It really is the perfect punch for any Thanksgiving, Christmas, or New Year’s festivities!
