    I made this for a Christmas Cookie Exchange about 4 years ago and it was a HIT! I have made it every year since then and now make 2 batches!

    Made this punch for my 50th birthday/ Christmas party. It was a HUGE HIT ! I had around 50 people, so I tripled the recipe and it worked out beautifully. So many people commented on how delicious and refreshing it was. I highly recommend this one.

    This punch was the hit of our party. Seriously delicious and not too sweet. It paired perfectly with the tapenades and pestos we had out. We tripled the recipe and it was the perfect amount for 50 guests. Fantastic recipe! We will make this again.
