A Delicious, Refreshing Christmas Punch Recipe | Christmas Cocktail

This Christmas Punch is a lovely fruity punch for the grown-ups, containing prosecco and a good dash of vodka.

A great way to keep your guest’s drinks topped up – or let them fill up themselves!

I’ve included some instructions below for a non-boozy version too.

Note 1: Making ahead
If you’re making the punch ahead, don’t put the ice, prosecco, vodka or mint leaves in. Make the rest of the punch a few hours ahead, then add the ice, prosecco and vodka. Stir together and top with the mint leaves.

Note 2: Alcohol-free Christmas Punch
Don’t add the prosecco and vodka, instead add an extra 300ml (1 1/4 cups) clementine or orange juice, plus 750ml (or about 3.1 cups) or sparkling red or white grape juice. I like to use Schloer, but you can use your favourite.

Note 3: Scaling down the punch recipe
This recipe makes around 18 cups of punch. You can scale down the recipe by half or three quarter sticking to the same ratios.
