Hello and welcome back to The Egg Burner! For my final recipe of the semester, I decided to get in the holiday spirit by making a holiday beverage: a festive punch!

This drink is sure to turn heads, both for its beauty and its taste. Check out the recipe below.

The ingredients needed are simple:

  • Plenty of ice
  • 64 ounces of cranberry juice cocktail ($1.84 at Walmart)
  • 15 ounces of pineapple juice ($2.98 at Walmart)
  • 12 ounces of lemon-lime soda ($0.72 at Walmart)
  • 1 container of frozen lemonade ($1.18 at Walmart)
  • 2 oranges sliced for garnish ($0.57 each at Walmart)
  • 1 package of cranberries for garnish ($2.76 at Walmart)

The equipment needed is minimal:

  • A glass pitcher
  • A can opener

For starters, fill your pitcher ⅓ of the way full with ice.

Empty the frozen lemonade into the pitcher.

Next, add the lemon-lime soda and cranberry and pineapple juices. Mix them to combine.

Finally, place ½ the sliced oranges and ½ the bag of cranberries on top of the pitcher for added flavor and garnish. Use the remaining orange slices and cranberries to garnish individual glasses.

There you have it: Holiday Punch!

This drink was an absolute hit in my household, so much so that my mom asked me to make it again for Christmas! 

I think the oranges and cranberries are super festive, and the see-through pitcher makes the drink look extra beautiful.

I hope you make this recipe for yourself, and I hope your friends and family love it as much as mine did.

Have an amazing holiday!
