Cheers Festive Punch Recipes for New Years

Having guests over for New Year’s Eve or New Year’s Day? Unless you want to spend the evening playing bartender, serve punch. It’s a great way to control alcohol consumption If you’re really ambitious, offer a variety of punches. It’s also a good way to control the alcohol consumption. Keep your punch cold without diluting the contents by using stainless steel ice cubes, an ice ring made in a gelatin mold or nestle the punch bowl in a larger container filled with crushed ice. Pre-mix a back-up batch and keep it in the refrigerator until needed, adding any carbonated beverage just before serving. Wow, look at that, you’re enjoying your guests instead of mixing drinks.

Here are a half dozen punch recipes. Most are perfectly delicious if you omit the booze and substitute ginger ale or lemon-lime soda. Do you have a favorite festive punch? Let’s hear about it.
