Welcome to my new favorite holiday Party Punch Recipe! When Autumn rolls around and all the Thanksgiving and Christmas parties are in full swing, easy party punch recipes for a crowd are an absolute must. I have made other large batch drink recipes in the past that I love, such as our Easy Holiday Punch, Apple Pie Sangria, Pumpkin Pie Punch, and even Holiday Spiced Mulled Wine.
This one’s different though. This punch recipe has a couple of special ingredients that make it extra creamy and extra fun: ice cream and Everclear! It’s an unexpected combination, but the result is so delicious.
My other party punch recipes are great for so many occasions, but some of them have a lot of ingredients, or involve a lot of prep time.

Party Punch Recipes with Everclear
You faithful readers might remember that last year I had an awesome time coming up with vodka infusions with Everclear®. I found out just how fun and versatile this (INEXPENSIVE) 190 proof grain alcohol can be. I made everything from Homemade Apple Pie Vodka to Homemade Strawberry Shortcake Vodka (those make awesome homemade Christmas gifts by the way!). Everclear is perfect for this Cherry Vanilla Ice Cream Party Punch Recipe because its flavorless and cost effective when making big batch drinks. You can use as much or as little as you’d like to make this punch ideal for your holiday party.
Cherry Vanilla Ice Cream Punch
All you need for this Cherry Vanilla Party Punch is tart cherry juice, cream soda, Everclear, and vanilla bean ice cream!
That’s right. It takes just 4 ingredients to make this easy party punch recipe! It tastes just like Cherry Vanilla Cream Soda but with a little something extra. The ice cream makes it so much creamier…the flavors really come together once the ice cream punch starts to melt down.
It’s creamy, dreamy, and so delicious! The perfect mix of tart cherry, sweet vanilla, and a kick of Everclear.
PRO TIP: Use frozen cherries in place of ice so that you don’t water down the flavor! Works like a charm and it’s pretty to boot. Win win.
