Grand Marnier Holiday Champagne Punch

Grand Marnier Holiday Champagne Punch

It’s time to get excited about Christmas! The Holidays are here and we created this delicious and festive Grand Marnier Holiday Champagne Punch for a celebratory party with friends {recipe below}. It was a total hit and super easy to make, so delicious in fact, that many people requested the recipe afterwards – success!

We love this light and refreshing Holiday Champagne Punch made with Grand Marnier, Cranberry Pomegranate juice, LaMarca Prosecco and a splash of organic ginger beer. We garnished this tasty libation with pomegranate seeds and fresh berries, which added an even more celebratory feel to the cocktail.

Also, to make sure no one lost their glass we used these awesome wine glass writers pens from Crate and Barrel. So cool and fun! Write your name or even create a festive design on your wine glass and perfect, your guests can keep track of their drinks and have fun at the same time. They’re quick drying and wash off easily so not to worry… and they are only $9.95 for a set of three!

With a drink this celebratory you should definitely try and break out your fanciest of glassware and how pretty are these vintage champagne flutes?! We found some that look almost identical at Williams Sonoma. A set of four is under $55 and make for the perfect gift.

This festive holiday punch is such a crowd pleaser and you can make it all look so luxe on a budget too. We found beautiful blue serving bowls  (similar) and this glass pitcher  at Target for under $20.

The cocktail has a lot of flavor going on, with just a touch of sweetness – exactly how we like our cocktails. We hope you love it just as much as we do!

Please let us know if you make it, we always enjoy reading your comments. Also, if you have any favorite holiday recipes of your own please share them as well below!
