This Sparkling Cranberry Punch is the perfect family friendly drink for your holiday gatherings!


We are in the throws of the holiday season, which means soon we will be going to, and hosting, several holiday parties. I love this season because it means I get to see so many friends and family that I don't normally get to see throughout the year. It's unfortunate, but true, as life keeps us busy and moving in so many different directions. That's why I love to cook and bake for my parties. I want my guests to feel the love through my creations.

I love to have a signature drink at my gatherings. Rather than having to be a server throughout the party, it's nice to have a drink prepared and ready for my friends. This Sparkling Cranberry Punch is perfect for any occasion, and great for all ages. Want to make it a cocktail rather than a mocktail? Add a shot of vodka and you're good to go!


Cranberries are definitely a winter fruit, and this punch includes both fresh cranberries and cranberry juice. The "sparkle" here is Canada Dry® Ginger Ale. It adds the perfect amount of ginger taste along with just the right amount of bubbles. It's absolutely delicious and simple to make.



I found everything I needed for this punch at my local Target store. I also saved a little money with the ibotta app! And who doesn't like to save money? Am I right? Right now you can use Ibotta to save on these great deals:
