This festive holiday punch is the perfect addition to any holiday party. It has a great tangy, citrus flavor without being overly sweet, like so many punches can be. My whole family loves this holiday treat and it can be thrown together in minutes (which is perfect when you are already busy planning a party).
It seems like there’s always a reason to come up with a quick holiday punch this time of year. Every event I host, it seems like I’m scrambling to come up with something good at the last minute.
The food, I have covered. It’s always the punch that throws me off. It’s an afterthought.
Fortunately, this Cranberry Citrus Holiday Punch is so easy to throw together, even if it is an afterthought.
There’s no worry about sorbet melting in this and having to be replaced throughout the party. This is just a quick pour-it-in-and-be-done punch.
You can buy the ingredients well ahead of time too so you don’t have to stress about any last-minute runs to the store (no one has time for that).
I’m not a fan of overly sweet punches. I typically just go for water so having something to drink that tastes more like a dessert just isn’t refreshing to me. This has some nice tang to it and isn’t overly sweet. It was sweet enough that my kids still loved it but it wasn’t over the top.
If you are hosting a holiday party this season, this punch is definitely the way to go.

I reserve a few of the sliced fruit to mix in throughout the night so they stay fresh.
