White Sparkling Punch (non-alcoholic)

With just a few more days left of 2014, we are finishing up our holiday themed posts with a recipe for a delicious white sparkling punch. Served at our White Winter Wonderland Baby Shower, this non-alcoholic punch was both beautiful and super easy to make. It’s best served chilled so make sure to purchase the ingredients at least a day in advance.

To add a little festivity to your beverage area, fill your drink dispenser and each cup with the apples, cranberries, and a sprig of rosemary. If you’re hosting your party outside of the months of November and December, don’t worry if you can’t find cranberries. This white punch can easily be incorporated¬†for any party year-round by substituting the cranberries with another seasonal fruit.

Ingredients:

3 bottles of white sparkling grape juice
1 container of apple juice
2 liters of ginger ale
Granny smith apple
Red apple
Cranberries
Rosemary sprigs

Directions:

Chill grape juice, apple juice, and ginger ale the night before. Approximately 20 minutes before serving, blend the grape juice, apple juice, and ginger ale in a large clear container.

Dice the apples. Place a few apple chunks in a serving bowl and pour the remainder in the punch. Place some cranberries in a serving bowl and pour the remainder in the punch. Cut the rosemary into small 3″ sprigs and place on a serving dish.

*STP Tip: Dust the rosemary sprigs with “snow” by drizzling a little bit of water on the sprigs and rolling each one in a plate of sugar.

To serve, fill each cup with ice and punch. Top with apples, cranberries, and a sprig of rosemary.
