Pomegranate New Year’s Punch (with Rum and Vodka) Perfect New Year’s drink to help you celebrate with your loved ones. This sweet-tart delicious punch is absolutely gorgeous and can be made in advance.
Who’s ready to party?? I know I’m and with this Pomegranate New Year’s Punch (with Rum and Vodka) recipe!!
It will surely make you want to put your dancing shoes on and welcome 2017! Before, we go further, can you believe that we’ll be in 2017 in like 2 days?
Seriously, the year went by so quickly and I’m not even ready for my New Year goals (or should I say, haven’t even completed all of my 2016 goals).
Are you hosting a New Years party or going to one?
We are actually doing both in next two days and I’m so ready with my punch drink which not only packs that needed punch for a party but is budget friendly too.
And, did I mention that I also entered into the “Stir It Up Holiday Blogger Mixology Challenge” at Stirrings (who make cocktail mixers and rimmers) #StirringsMixologyContest.
So for this blogger challenge, I could choose any of their 2 cocktail mixers and for me, it was the pomegranate and lemon mixers.
Since it was also going to be my New Year party drink, I’m adding both rum and vodka along with fresh pomegranate seeds and orange peel
(the peel add that refreshing citrus flavor in the drink)
Every year, when we are hosting, I try to include one special recipe that becomes a focus of our party and this year it’s going to be this Pomegranate New Year’s Punch (with Rum and Vodka).
I’m definitely going over and above to give it that extra pop of color by adding fresh pomegranate arils and lights.
If you don’t drink alcohol, you can definitely make it without any liquor by adding orange flavored soda.
One more thing that I like about this drink which I mentioned above is that it’s pretty economical as a big batch drink.
This particular recipe makes 10 glasses and I know with so much food and other drinks, not many will have more than 2.
The recipe is very easy and you can make this drink a good 2-3 hours before the party, just add the soda and pomegranate before serving (for that crisp taste).
I used two types of rimmers – one is a margarita rimmer (salty) and the other is a pomegranate rimmer (sweet).
I’m sure my guests are going to have a fun time deciding which one they want.
Since it’s my last recipe of 2016, I wanted to make it extra special, bright and something that’s absolutely easy to make but packed with a punch.
~ I WISH YOU’LL A HAPPY, HEALTHY, PROSPEROUS & LOVING NEW YEAR 2017 ~
~ XOXO – MOLLY ~
