This is the very best (and easiest) Christmas punch recipe to make this holiday season!
I have two close girlfriends up on the ranch, and a group of six or so amazing friends in Reno (the closest city to us, and my home town). One of my very best friends is Katie - she is the leather to my lace. When I wear pink, she wears black, in the complimentary kind of way.
She has been making her "secret sangria" for every get together we've thrown for years on end. It's a tried and true, "everybody will love it" kind of recipe. So when I asked her if she'd be willing to share it 'on the blog', I was a little nervous she would be completely offended that I'd even asked!
Luckily for all of us, her only request was that I refer to it as "Katie's Secret Sangria" - which happens to no longer be a secret. I am so excited to get to share it with you because even though it's not a difficult recipe, it's absolutely mouth watering! It's such a great recipe to keep on hand for parties and gatherings because it's easily doubled to serve a large crowd. Plus, it's very versatile to any season - so feel free to tailor it to your tastes!
THE very BEST CHRISTMAS PUNCH RECIPE
- 1/4 liter Fresca or Squirt
- 1/2 can frozen limeade (softened)
- 1 bottle Brut champagne
- 1 bottle flavored vodka (we love berry or citrus)
- Fresh fruit, soaked in flavored vodka (oranges, cranberries, lemons, limes, etc...)
Step 1: Place 2-3 cups of flavored vodka in a bowl. Add sliced fruit, and allow to soak for an hour or two (or even overnight).
Step 2: Combine vodka, fruit (and remaining vodka from bowl), Fresca, and limeade in a large pitcher. Stir well until combined.
Step 3: Top with Brut Champagne & ice. Enjoy!
