One of my favorite things about the holiday season is all of the time spent with family and friends.

With get-togethers to attend and parties at your own place, it’s great to have a few delicious go-to recipes in your repertoire. That’s why I thought I’d tell you about my favorite (and super easy) drink to make for gatherings: Jingle Juice Holiday Punch.

The Easiest Holiday Punch

A couple of years ago a neighboring town hosted a Christmas open house in all of their little downtown shops. Adults had the option of buying a ticket and enjoying wine or a festive cocktail at each of the stores. I know, it sounds like trouble, but it was such a fun time.

One of the stores served this punch. It was delightful!

When I found out it was made with only three ingredients, I was even more impressed. I have no idea what the store owners called the punch so I decided to name it Jingle Juice because it’s a kick to say.

Jingle Juice Ingredients

As I mentioned above you only need three ingredients to make this Jingle Juice Holiday Punch.

  • Whipped Vodka – The one I like is from Pinnacle brand. Smirnoff also makes a Whipped Cream vodka. If you can’t find whipped, try vanilla.
  • Pink Champagne or Sparkling Rosé – I prefer one on the dry side to cut down on the sweetness of the punch.
  • Cherry 7-up – I prefer the regular here, but you can certainly go with diet. If you can’t find this, you can also use Sprint Cranberry Zero, Cranberry Ginger Ale, or any berry lemon-lime soda.

How to Make this Holiday Punch

You really don’t need an explanation on how to put this together because it’s that simple, but I’m going to tell you anyway. Plus, I’ll give you some tips on how to fancify the recipe too!

There is also a printable recipe card with instructions at the end of this post.

Ice cubes filled with frozen cranberry and rosemary

1. Get a punch bowl or extra large pitcher and fill it with ice.

I decided to get fancy and make super-sized ice cubes (with these molds) that contained cranberries and rosemary. This is totally optional.

Another way to make it a bit more extra is to just toss in some cranberries. However, I think the ice cubes are such a fun touch and keep the holiday punch cold too.

2. Then add your three ingredients.

All you need is whipped vodka, pink champagne (or sparkling Rosé), and a 2-liter bottle of Cherry 7-up. Give it a quick stir and you’re ready to go.

It’s really that easy. Isn’t that color gorgeous?

The resulting cocktail is delicious and so festive. It’s definitely a crowd pleaser.

FAQs about Holiday Punch

I’ve made this recipe dozens of times over the years. I always get the same questions, so wanted to go ahead and answer them for you here in case you have them too!

Why is it called punch?

I took a deep dive to find the answer to this one! The rumor is that “punch” is from a hindi word that means “five”. Punch was first discovered in India and traditionally had 5 ingredients (alcohol, sugar, juice, spice, and water), so the name makes perfect sense!

This punch is even more simple with just 3 ingredients, but we’ll still call it punch. 😉

How can I make my holiday punch sweeter?

If you are a fan of drinks that are on the sweeter side, choose sweet pink champagne or sweet sparkling rosé. Prefer a less sweet holiday punch? Opt for a dry sparkling alcohol instead.

Typically, bottles will be labeled as sweet or dry, but if you aren’t sure how to tell, ask someone at the liquor store.

What’s the best way to serve this punch?

I’m serving up my punch in these simple, yet elegant double old-fashioned glasses. You can find them here.

You could also serve this in a punch bowl or beverage dispenser.

    The first time I had this a friend made it and I loved it so much I made it for my Christmas party! Thanks for the delicious drink!

  • JLR at

    We had to half the recipe bc we didn’t have a large enough pitcher for a full recipe, plus it was just me and the hubs. Drinking it now and all I taste is the whipped vodka. Does it need to “meld” or sit overnight? Not bashing the author/creator but I’m not impressed. And we had to hunt down the cherry 7up at 4 different stores. 😂🙄🤦🏻‍♀️

  • Colette R at

    Would regular vodka work, instead of whipped? Or, is there something additional I could add to the recipe, to give it the whipped/sweeter flavor?

    • Michael Wurm Jr. at

      As I mentioned in the post above a good substitute would be vanilla vodka. I wouldn’t recommend just regular vodka.

    Having very little experience with making cocktails at home, this recipe was so simple even a novice like me looked like a seasoned bartender! It turned out so delicious and looked so “Christmasy” I did substitute pomegranate seeds for the garnish which I thought added a nice flavor. Thanks for sharing this and coming to my cocktail party rescue!

    • Joanne at

      Stacey- I am right there with you and planning to make it. Can you confirm that you used the entire bottle of vodka with the other ingredients? I’d hate to buy it and then ruin it! Thanks and happy holidays!

  • Patti at

    Made for a holiday party. Used Cranberry Sprite Zero. It was a hit! Everyone loved it – even the skeptics!

  • Jessica at

    Excited to try this recipe! I love the content on your blog, but admittedly I am usually reminded to check it out when you link or share on your IG (not what you want to hear, I’m sure, because IG is just such a dang sucky place, sometimes, especially for content creators). So glad you shared this post from “back in the day” of 2015 – though I’ve been following you since then, I missed this one so I’m glad you’re resharing and bumping this one up in relevancy.

  • Deanna Worm at

    This looks so lovely (and tasty). I want to make this for my husband, sister and I at Christmas. Love your ideas, photos, etc., Michael!

    From one Worm to another Wurm!

  • Shannon at

    I fixed this for a holiday party and it was a hit! The entire pitcher was gone. We used sugar free Cherry 7 Up because that was all the store had in a 2 liter and pink moscato. Thank you for the recipe.

  • Lor at

    • Michael Wurm Jr. at

      You just made my ENTIRE WEEK!! Thank you so much!!

      xo Michael

      • Joanne at

        Michael – I am right there with Stacey being a novice (and commenting on Pinterest!) and planning to make it. Can you confirm that you used the entire bottle of vodka with the other ingredients? I’d hate to buy it and then ruin it! Thanks and happy holidays!

      • Michael Wurm Jr. at

        Yes. The whole bottle. You can go less if you’d like.

        xo Michael

  • Lauren at

    Any ideas for a cherry 7up substitute? Hard to find around me!

    • Michael Wurm Jr. at

      Any sort of cherry lemon lime soda. (You could even do 7up and add some grenadine to it.) You could also use cranberry ginger ale which should be easy to find during the holiday season.

      xo Michael
