Every year, we host a Christmas Eve party for our friends, neighbors, and family. We keep it pretty casual…mostly, it’s a chance to gather, wear out the kids, and eat a bunch of treats (I basically turn into Buddy the Elf when Christmas rolls around). It’s pretty much the best party ever!
This year we’re introducing a new drink to the mix – the super refreshing party favorite, Cranberry Sprite® Sherbet Punch. And to make it even more festive, I’ve put together a super cute set of Christmas party printables to go with it.
This Cranberry Sprite® Sherbet Punch is based off a similar recipe from my mother-in-law, but with a holiday twist (cranberries!). Sprite® Cranberry is a favorite around here – and since it’s seasonal, we are sure to grab it at our local Kroger store when it becomes available! You can find it in the soft drinks aisle.
We also picked up some Simply® Cranberry Cocktail (find it in the refrigerated juice section) to add to the punch – this is what gives it its kicky cranberry tang! And, we grabbed some DASANI® Sparkling in Black Cherry for those who aren’t interested in the punch (I know, WHAT). DASANI® Sparkling comes in 14 different flavors, so there are lots to choose from.
And I think you’ll like this cute Coca-Cola®/Kroger collab – the Coca-Cola® Kroger Advent Calender! Such a cute idea – there will be new content every day, so be sure to check back often.
Here’s how to make your Cranberry Sprite® Sherbet Punch (I promise, this is a kid-pleaser…but the grown-ups are going to love it, too).
- Simply® Cranberry Cocktail 52oz
- 5 cans Sprite® Cranberry
- Raspberries, 1 cup
- Water, 1/4 cup
- Raspberry Sherbet, 8 scoops (orange sherbet is another great option)
- Cranberries and raspberries for garnish (optional)
Refrigerate your cranberry cocktail and Sprite® overnight so they’ll be cold (otherwise the sherbet will melt quickly – and this really is better icy cold!).
With a small amount of water (1/4 cup should do it, add more if you need to), puree your raspberries and pour into a large bowl. Add the Simply® Cranberry Cocktail and 5 cans of Sprite® and stir lightly. If necessary, transfer to a punch bowl (it was easier for me to mix in a large mixing bowl, and then move to the punch bowl).
Add the raspberry sherbet.
Use a ladle to serve.
This will make about 16 1-cup servings.
While I was at Kroger, I also picked up some tasty snacks and these cute gold cups! Our Kroger has a wide selection of party supplies in the kitchen department of the store. It was hard not to buy them all.
I rolled the cranberry theme into the rest of this party (it’s such a fun and festive color – it was perfect for these Christmas party printables!). Included in this set are a Holly Jolly 8×10 print, a colorful Christmas banner, party tent cards, and treat bag labels that say “Treat YoursELF,” because elfs, y’all!
We usually convert our entryway into a drink/snack station so our guests can grab something on the way in, and then some goodies on the way out. Nobody leaves empty handed!
You can download your printables directly from the PDF inserted below (just look for the little download arrow symbol when you hover over the document and click). If that doesn’t work, download from the “Download” button below that.
