Nothing makes the holidays quite like a Christmas Punch!
This crowd-pleasing, frozen cocktail is going to make everything merry!
How To Make Christmas Punch
This Christmas punch is colorful, flavorful and totally festive! This recipe uses fruit juices (lemon juice, orange juice, and pineapple juice), bourbon, and grenadine. The grenadine keeps it sweet and gives the punch that cheery red color.
The best way to keep this punch frozen is by using frozen orange concentrate, in its frozen state. I did this with my Peach Bourbon Slush Punch and it worked beautifully! With this Whiskey Sour Party Punch, I made frozen juice ice cubes to keep the punch cool.
I combined frozen orange juice concentrate, water, pineapple juice, lemon juice, bourbon, and grenadine in a large ziptop bag. Keep the bag in the freezer until you are ready to serve it up. The punch will not freeze completely, it will have a slushie sort of consistency.

Substitutions For Christmas Punch
The deep, smoky, woodsy flavor of bourbon works really well with the fruit flavors of this punch. But if bourbon isn’t your favorite, vodka and rum (either regular or spiced) would be great!
If you would like to keep this non-alcoholic, you could use lemon-lime soda, seltzer water, or ginger ale.
You can use almost any juice in this recipe, the pineapple juice, orange juice along with the grenadine work well together, but cherry juice, cranberry juice, and mango juice are all fabulous substitutions!
This recipe can be easily doubled or tripled to accommodate your guests. Garnish your punch with fresh orange slices, lemon slices, and maraschino cherries!
