Welcome back! Today is day 4 of the 12 days of Christmas Sweets series here at Dessert Now, Dinner Later! What is a holiday party without punch? This drink is one my family has EVERY YEAR at both Thanksgiving & Christmas. It’s a non-alcoholic drink that is great for the whole family. With just a few ingredients it whips up so fast & will be gone just as fast as it is made! You can also dip the rims of your glasses in green sugar crystals for a fun holiday look!

Also, you are getting a bonus recipe today! I am sharing my lightened up version of the same drink, which my mom thinks tastes better than the original.
