Nothing says the holidays better than a beautiful crystal bowl filled with a sparkling jewel-toned punch or the aroma of cinnamon and spices wafting from a slow cooker of simmering cider. Try some of our recipes for your next tree trimming party or holiday celebration.

Crimson Christmas Punch
This non-alcoholic punch is great for the whole family.

Fast Fruit Punch
A refreshing combination of citrus and grape juices you will want to serve year-round.

Sangria
Substitute a cold, dry champagne for the red wine for another variation of this popular beverage.

Betty's Mulled Cider
Fruity, spicy and non-alcoholic.

Mulled Cider
This one is for the grown-ups with the addition of dark rum.

Mulled Wine
For convenience make this punch ahead of time, but don't add the brandy until you are ready to heat and serve.
