This Holiday Punch has tropical flavors, fruit juice, and club soda for a fizzy, fruity, red punch! (Lighter version also available!)

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!

 

This Holiday Punch has tropical flavors, fruit juice, and club soda for a fizzy, fruity, red punch! (Lighter version also available!)

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. (I think I might have to agree with her, but they are both delicious.)  If you are counting calories, you will want the second recipe. Enjoy! See you back here tomorrow!
