Cranberry Cosmo Punch

Come holiday season, mulled wine usually gets all the attention, but I'm switching things up with an extra-festive mulled cranberry punch. It's a bit sweeter, and the vodka makes it more party-friendly. It's essentially a cranberry Cosmo in punch form! Simmer the cranberry juice with brown sugar, cloves, star anise, and cinnamon to infuse it with holiday flavor — and to make your house smell delicious. Once it's cooled, just add the alcohol and serve over ice! 

This is one of my favorite holiday cocktails because the recipe is made to serve a crowd. For more single-serve options, you can never go wrong with my holiday negroni or jam cocktail. Plus, no party is complete without a festive treat — my new and improved holiday biscotti is perfect!
