What do I use as cranberry juice?

We highly recommend the Mr. Consistent Cosmo Premium Cocktail Mix! It features a perfect blend of sweetness and tartness that would really make this punch shine. You can always do a "ratio test" on your own before committing to the whole batch. If any element of the recipe is too strong, you can always dilute it with water.

Don't worry – this cocktail mixer is vegan and alcohol-free. :)

Otherwise, you can purchase juices mentioned above at the supermarket.

Can I turn this Christmas punch into a cocktail?

If there are no children in your Christmas party, then why not! You can never go wrong with gin - so we recommend that as a first try. Otherwise you can also try a splash of vodka. Again, do a "stir test" to see what ratio tastes best before making the recipe.
