Why You'll Love This Recipe

If you're looking for a fun cocktail to serve this Thanksgiving then this Holiday Punch is it! This recipe is also delicious as a mocktail that even the kids will love! When I made this recipe the first time, all I could think was how amazing this drink would look in a big punch bowl, like high school dance style complete with a ladle! The floating cranberries make this drink so festive and would just add to the punch bowl look as well.

The recipe makes one cocktail, but you can multiply it by however many guests you anticipate and then serve it in the punch bowl. Leave the cinnamon sticks out in a little dish on the side so people can ladle their punch and then stick a cinnamon stick in it. This Holiday Punch would be an amazing addition to your Thanksgiving, Christmas, or New Year's gathering.

Why organic?

Why use organic ingredients in this recipe? You all know I’m a huge organic advocate, and I bet you may be thinking sometimes, Why would I even bother to use organic ingredients in something that is so sweet and indulgent? But, that is the exact reason why you should use organic ingredients! Sweet things need to have flavor in order to be good, otherwise they are just sweet and they don’t taste like much else. Organic ingredients are more pure than conventional ones, therefore they actually have more flavor than the non organic options. Say it with me, organic means more flavor! And not just more flavor but a more true and pure flavor. And organic ingredients are much healthier for you to eat in general as they do not contain GMOs or anything artificial. Plus, you are being environmentally friendly when you choose organic ingredients!

So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here. Tip – hover over each ingredient to see the name. And if you want to learn more about organic foods and the difference, read my post here on Food Labels and What They Mean.
