Holiday Cranberry Mint Punch
Serves: 15 Servings
  • 3 cups fresh cranberries
  • 1 cup fresh mint leaves, roughly torn
  • 1 cup raw sugar
  • Zest of one orange
  • ½ cup fresh orange juice
  • 2 cups vodka
  • 2 cups Triple Sec
  • 3 cups cranberry juice (I used diet)
  • 1 bottle sparkling wine, chilled
  1. Spread cranberries in a single layer on a large baking sheet and chill in the freezer for at least an hour until frozen.
  2. In a medium bowl, muddle together mint leaves, sugar and orange zest until completely combined (I just used the end of a wooden spoon for this!) then pour the mixture into a small saucepan and add fresh orange juice, bringing to a simmer and whisking until all sugar is dissolved. Using a mesh sieve, strain out the mint and set syrup mixture aside.
  3. Combine vodka, Triple Sec, and cranberry juice in a large punch bowl then add the syrup mixture. Just before serving, pour in the chilled sparkling wine and frozen cranberries - this will keep the punch nice and cold. Garnish with fresh mint leaves, serve and enjoy!
