We are almost halfway through December – are you holiday partied out yet?
I have been to a few parties and gatherings, and have a few more on the docket before Christmas, but I’m feeling good about the pace so far. Some years my introverted self gets overwhelmed with all of the holiday get-togethers. I have found that, while it can be more work to host a party, I sometimes prefer being the host to being a guest. When I host a party, I’m guaranteed to know everyone I invite, which takes away the stress of making small talk with strangers, and even if I have to go back and forth to the kitchen, I often feel more relaxed in my own home than I do somewhere else.
As a hostess, I love serving a pretty, delicious, hands-off punch during the holiday season so I spend less time refilling drinks, and have more time to visit with friends and family. This sparkling pomegranate punch satisfies all of those categories.
The pomegranate juice and orange slices create a beautiful, jewel-toned punch, while the delicious orange ginger simple syrup gives it a little tang and just the right amount of sweetness. With a splash of rum, the pomegranate punch is party ready!
Another perk: this recipe easily multiplies, so you can make enough for a crowd of any size!
