Cran-Raspberry Lacroix Holiday Punch

'Tis the season for lots of parties! One thing I've found when hosting holiday gatherings is small touches can do a lot to up your game. Enter: This punch.


When you're having big groups of people over, it's good to have a variety of options for those who have different dietary restrictions and concerns. Obviously, the only way to completely ensure you're serving the right foods to your friends and family is to text every single person on the guest list and ask if there's anything they can't or won't eat. But, when you're having a larger get-together, it's nearly impossible to contact everyone and perfectly accommodate their food needs. I mean, it is possible. But then you wouldn't have had time to binge Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life for the second time this month.


So here's my solution: I play it safe. I try to go with the most wow-worthy, clean ingredients that pack a punch — and YES, that pun was intended. (Do you feel like I'm about to start talking about Lacroix? I might be about to start talking about Lacroix...)


Okay, you guessed it. Lacroix is the not-so-secret ingredient in this holiday concoction! In my humble option, the absolute worst thing at parties is punch that tastes like melted sherbet. So instead of buying a bunch of sugary mixers and adding in a dessert, try this recipe instead:

Single Serving
- 8 oz. Cran-Raspberry LaCroix (3/4 of a can)
- 4 oz. Cranberry Juice
- Splash of Orange Juice
- Garnish with orange slice, frozen cranberries (to keep it chilly!) and rosemary

For a Punch Bowl
- 8 cans LaCroix
- 1 46 oz. jug of Cranberry Juice
- 1/2 cup Orange Juice
- Garnish with orange slice, frozen cranberries (to keep it chilly!) and rosemary


The best thing about this punch is you'll still feel great after drinking 10-12 glasses of it! Don't ask me how I know...
