Perfect Holiday Party Punches and Shot Recipes

December 14, 2016

Are you hosting for the holidays and you don’t want to be stuck playing bartender all night? Make it easy on yourself, and turn one of our delicious Signature Drinks into a festive holiday punch! These recipes are quick to whip up and all you need is a punch bowl filled with ice to get it started. Depending on the size of your punch bowl, you might have to adjust the recipe. That way you can busy yourself with other things, like making sure the conversation never turns to politics.

Once it’s made, you can close your eyes, sip and pretend you’re at Howl at the Moon instead of with your family. Cheers!
