Apple Pineapple Orange Sparkling Punch Recipe

Friends, do you struggle with perfectionism, especially during the holidays? Then this post is for you!

But first, enjoy this festive Apple Pineapple Orange Sparkling Punch Recipe, delicious for Christmas or NYE!

How do you make a holiday punch?

Every party needs a good punch, and you can serve this Apple Pineapple Orange Sparkling Punch Recipe as a virgin punch, or add a little rum!

  1. The first thing you need to do is grab a large punch bowl. Guess what I used? A large salad bowl. Use anything big and deep that can hold a lot of liquid.
  2. Make sure you have a ladle to serve the punch. 
  3. Mix and the ingredients together ahead of time; cooke and refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving.
  4. When ready to serve, garnish the punch bowl with fruit, cinnamon sticks and pomegranate seeds, and pour in the punch!

Hosting a holiday party

Every year, my family and I carve out some time to celebrate the holidays with different groups of friends. Last year we hosted several parties, one with these easy Marinated Cornish Game Hens.

This year we are making my Crusted Pepper Prime Rib for a more intimate dinner party along with these Persimmon Pear Caprese Crostini appetizer!

BEST Apple Pineapple Orange Sparkling Punch Recipe

This year, we’ll also be hosting an appetizer party with this Meat Cheese & Olive Charcuterie Board, but here are more ideas: Seafood Entertaining Charcuterie, RecipeGirl’s Seafood Party Ideas (look at the Tree idea for the kid table!), and this Smoked Salmon Appetizer Platter. Along with the delicious platters of goodness, we’ll be serving this Festive Apple Pineapple Holiday Punch.

Everyone brings their favorite “cheese board,” or charcuterie.

There’s plenty to go around.

Host a laid back party for all

We love to celebrate the season with new friends and old. It’s also great to establish new traditions and take turns hosting so the pressure isn’t always on one particular family.

The goal? Laid back and easy for everyone!

What is perfect?

Finally, Paul and I found our perfect-to-us tree. What tree is perfect, by the way? I’ll be the first to say we have a Charlie Brown Christmas tree this year—nothing spectacular. I think during this season it’s easy to create an image where everything looks perfect. Which makes me think of this: When is good, good enough?

Striving to be your best is not the same as perfectionism.

“Perfectionism is not self-improvement. Perfectionism is, at its core, about trying to earn approval and acceptance.” – Brene Brown

So with an imperfect tree, and not feeling over-rushed this holiday season, my goal is to create a space of anticipation that invites others in.
