This EASY CHERRY VANILLA PARTY PUNCH only has 4 ingredients and is an instant hit at any holiday get together. This punch is the ultimate Christmas drink recipe.
Welcome to my new favorite holiday punch recipe! When Autumn rolls around and all the Thanksgiving and Christmas parties are in full swing, 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.
They’re all great for so many occasions, but some of them have a lot of ingredients, or involve a lot of prep time. This Easy Cherry Vanilla Party Punch has only 4 ingredients and is SO SIMPLE! It has all the flavor and is an instant favorite for any holiday party, especially Christmas!
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 Party Punch 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.
All you need for this Cherry Vanilla Party Punch is tart cherry juice, cream soda, Everclear, and vanilla bean ice cream.
It’s creamy, dreamy, and so delicious. PRO TIP: Use frozen cherries in place of ice so that you don’t water down the flavor! Works like a charm and is pretty to boot. Win win.
The holidays are all about fun times, family togetherness, being grateful, and amazing food and drink. This Cherry Vanilla Party Punch is the ultimate addition to your Thanksgiving or Christmas tables. I just know you’ll love it as much as we do!
