Christmas Punch Recipes!

Here are a few of my favorite Holiday Punch Recipes, adapted from Southern Living.
I did another post called Punch Recipes that can be made throughout the year.

Of course I have to start with a Texas Holiday Punch.

Tex - Mex Christmas Punch:

1 C Granulated Sugar
1 C Water
1 Quart of Pomegranate Juice
3 C Tequila
1 C Fresh Lime Juice
1 C Cranberry Juice
1 - 750ml. bottle of Champagne or Sparkling White Wine.

In a 3 quart saucepan on medium heat:
Bring to a boil, stirring constantly.
Heat for 5 minutes until sugar is completely dissolved, stirring constantly.
Set aside to cool for 45 - 60 minutes.

In a large Pitcher:
Pomegranate Juice
Lime Juice
Cranberry Juice
Refrigerate for 4 hours.
Pour into a large Punch Bowl.
Carefully add Champagne or Sparkling Wine

Peace in the Kitchen!

Christmas Brandy Milk Punch:
This recipe makes 4 servings.
