Tis’ the season for a delicious holiday punch to grace your table. I’m sharing this Cranberry Orange Punch Recipe, which is perfect for entertaining this holiday season.
As we get closer to the holidays, I am in full planning mode. I think we are going to have a relatively quiet Christmas; however, I still like to make all the fixings for my family too.
One thing we never do without is punch. We always have a punch recipe for the holidays.
I decided to make this Cranberry Orange Punch for Christmas because it’s just absolutely beautiful, plus it’s tasty too. It’s also perfect for adults and kids.
I know my kids feel like they are grown-ups when they get to enjoy a glass of punch with us.
My kids and I headed to Walmart to pick up all we needed to make our punch. It literally cost less than $10 to make this tasty drink and it will serve many.
One thing to note is that this holiday season is that when you purchase specially-marked 7UP, Canada Dry, or Squirt at Walmart, a donation will be made to The Salvation Army.
That’s a great way to easily spread the holiday cheer this season.

We are really striving to teach our kids more about giving (especially as they get older) and to really understand a little bit more about what it means to have hard times or to need a little help.
I have friends that volunteer each year to ring the bell with The Salvation Army and that’s something that I feel like as a family we need to participate in, too.
I am planning to look into it this year and try to get involved; especially for our kids, but also for us adults. We sometimes need a reminder and a change of perspective.
It’s easy to fall into our own routine and family life, and then forget about those that may not be as fortunate. What a wonderful tradition to have as a family!
Even now, one thing we always do is shop for a Salvation Army Angel Tree Child.
This year I think I’d love to do a bit more to spread some holiday cheer – wouldn’t you?
One easy way to do that is just to simply purchase participating products at your local Walmart.
That’s an easy way to be sure that no family is left in the cold this holiday season.
Now as you prepare your meals, be sure to enjoy some quality family time and a delicious glass of Cranberry Orange Punch.
