Tips For Cranberry Vodka Punch

  • If you don’t have a punch bowl you can use a pitcher.
  • Use ice blocks or an ice ring.
  • Prepare garnishes ahead of time, so you can easily add them in when serving.
  • Serve the punch in copper tumblers or small glasses over ice and garnish with fresh cranberries and raspberries.

Good Punch Etiquette!

Punch is perfect for serving a crowd quickly and easily, it’s a great way to make sure your guests have a drink in hand quickly after arriving.

To keep the punch cool, go for big ice cubes (an ice ring is ideal!). With you ladle, from time to time, take some punch from the bottom of the bowl and pour it back in, over the ice ring. This way the punch stays cool for longer.

After a while, some of your punch ingredients may sink to the bottom of the punch. Using the ladle, once in a while stir the bottom of the punch bowl to remix the ingredients.
