Pomegranate Packs-a-Punch

in All Recipes, Drinks


This is a bit of a traditional holiday punch with an actual punch. I like to taste the actual liquor in my punch, don’t you? And the bright color is just divine, making it a worthy and special holiday or perhaps superbowl party option.

The base recipe was shared by a dear friend, and I modified it to suit my boozy tastes. (The above photo is an ode to that wonderful dear friend…)

Holiday Punch


  • 2 cups pomegranate juice
  • 1 cup cranberry juice
  • 1 cup orange juice or tangerine juice
  • 1/2 cup of dark rum
  • 1 bottle of blanc de blancs sparkling wine
  • 2 pomegranates, sliced into 1/4 inch rounds

Pour all the liquids into a big punch bowl. Float the fruit slices throughout. Serve generous portions with a slice of the pomegranate. It makes great cocktail conversation, especially for those unfamiliar with the fruit.

    I wish I would have remembered to try something like this for Christmas. Thankfully, there's still New Years!
