I often joke that I must have an angel – who made great punch in the 1950s – living on my shoulder, when it comes time for a party.
Because, I can come up with punch inspiration and recipes on a whim, and I have no idea where they come from. I mean, who makes punch anymore?
This girl thinks no party is complete without a proper punch in attendance.
So, I served this beautiful, tasty little harvest punch up at my Friendsgiving last Friday, and it was a harvest hit!
Dawn’s Harvest CranPear Punch
1 bottle Simply Cranberry Juice Cocktail
1 bottle R.W. Knudsen Organic Pear juice
1 bottle Canada Dry Ginger Ale
1 Tbsp Almond Extract
Garnish: Cranberries & Rosemary sprigs (IF possible, marinate rosemary sprigs and cranberries in 1 c pear juice overnight – but, totally not essential)
*Optional (& highly recommended in this house): 1 bottle La Marca Prosecco
Honestly, the directions are simple. Just combine it all in your favorite punch container, and garnish with cranberries and rosemary sprigs.
My guests and I just thank my little punch fairy. May she never go away.
