Purim Party Pomegranate Punch

Because vodka and pomegranates make everything better.

Purim approaches and therefore so do Purim festivities. Put away that bottle (or can!) of Bartenura Moscato you bought for your lady friends, and check out these party punch ideas to wow you pals, instead. 

If your drink of choice is rum, try this citrusy rum punch garnished with pineapple wedges, which can easily be prepared ahead of time, leaving you more time to shake your grogger

Or, for a colorful and refreshing vodka drink to serve your guests, try the pomegranate punch recipe below. You can also make it ahead, and leave the alcohol out entirely for a delightful virgin punch. This would also make a great Rosh Hashanah beverage, as many Jews use pomegranates as their “new fruit.”

Versatile and delicious, what more could you ask for? Happy celebrating!
