Purim Party Punches

Purim approaches and therefore so do Purim festivities. Put away that bottle of Bartenura Moscato you bought for your lady friends, and try one of these party punch ideas to wow you friends instead. All three of these recipes can be prepared ahead of time, leaving you more time to shake your grogger.

Try this citrusy Rum Punch garnished with pineapple wedges if you’re drink of choice is rum.

Or if you prefer wine or sangria try my super simple “Boxed Wine Sangria.

For a colorful and refreshing vodka drink to serve your guests, try the pomegranate punch recipe below. You can also leave the alcohol out entirely for a delightful virgin punch.

Happy celebrating!
