Back again today with Master of Mixes to share the easiest holiday punch to entertain with this holiday season. This is a super easy and pretty recipe to make for guests in big batches to make entertaining a cinch. This punch is complete with warm spices, fresh fruit and served in a classic french wine glass. It feels instantly festive to have it in one of these glasses if you ask me. They remind me of my trips to Paris too which is always nice.
The only thing you need for this is one bottle of the Master of Mixes Red Sangria, 4 bottles of wine (just use a 1:4 ratio here and change accordingly) and fresh fruit. Add in some seasonal fruit like apples. pomegranate seeds, oranges and such. Blood oranges would be a fun colorful addition too. Cinnamon sticks, star anise and clove round it all out. If you want, you can also add a 1/2 cup of your favorite brandy. I never have brandy on hand so I left this out in mine today. One of the things I love about using these Master of Mixes is taking the guess work out of creating cocktails. The mixes are full of delicious flavors making playing bartender a thing of the past!
I placed all of these items on my bar cart to make it easy for guests to grab and build their own. Some people don’t love fruit in their drinks, so this is a nice way to give them the option to build their cocktail how they want it. Adding a fun stirrer makes this cocktail feel even more festive (as if it needed to).
