"Be of Good Cheer" ~ Christmas Citrus Punch

Tuesday, December 15, 2009

I found this punch recipe in Southern Lady Holidays magazine. Not a magazine I regularly buy but I couldn't resist it at Sam's. This punch recipe really got my attention and since I needed to bring something to our Ladies Bible Study Christmas Get Together, I volunteered to bring the punch. My punch bowl is really under used anyway. Everyone raved over this punch and I even won the *Prettiest Dish* award. It is very good and such a good measure of vitamin C. I'll find a reason to make this one again.

I don't typically post twice in the same day but I just couldn't resist this time. I'll be linking this to Tasty Tuesday, Tempt Your Tummy Tuesday and Tuesdays at the Table. Check out ALL the great recipes posted.

    That sounds so good and refreshing! I love punch.

  1. With family gatherings during the holiday season, this looks like a perfect punch. I think I need to dust off my punchbowl!

    It sounds so good. I love grapefruit. I used to make a punch with white grape juice and soda. I forget what else was in it. Frozen green grapes for garnishing.

    This sounds a lot like the punch that was served years ago at my grandparent's 50 wedding anniversary--it was so delcious, and we made it a few times after that but somehow misplaced or forgot the recipe--I can't wait to try this again!

  1. Lovely! It's hard to find good looking and good tasting punches that don't include alcohol -- and sometimes you just need an non-boozy punch! I'll save this recipe!

    That is probably the most gorgeous punch bowl that I've ever seen. The punch sounds wonderful too! Have a very Merry Christmas...Nancy.
