Blogmas Day 23 | Two-Ingredient Holiday Punch Recipe

two ingredient holiday punch recipe

Having the perfect drink to go along with your feast is the best way to go during holiday dinners. One of my favorite punches is probably the easiest drink you will ever create and the tastiest as well! This punch only takes two ingredients and some time for it to mix together. You can also make different variations of it to fit your personal tastes.

Ingredients

1 gallon of lime sherbet
2 two-liters of Sprite

Optional: You may use any type of sherbet you would like as well as a different citrus soda depending on your personal preference.

Preparation

  1. Place sherbet in the freezer and Sprite in the fridge for a couple of hours to allow it to be properly chilled.
  2. Take out sherbet about twenty minutes before preparing the punch.
  3. Pour both two-liters of Sprite into punch bowl.
  4. Once slightly softened, slowly scoop sherbet into the Sprite.
  5. Mixed the two together and allow to sit.
  6. Come back and stir every twenty minutes or so until the sherbet is mostly melted.
  7. Some chunks of sherbet can be left to keep the mixture cold for a longer time period.

Recipe | Homemade Cranberry Sauce

Cranberry sauce is not usually the most sought out menu item around the holidays. Most people think of the gross jelly substance that people slap out of a can and onto a small serving dish. Let me tell you, I hate that stuff, too. So when I saw I am making cranberry sauce, people normally look at me like I’m ten kinds of crazy. HOWEVER, I have a recipe that is knock-your-socks-off good and has had amazing feedback from many people (not just my family).

This is a recipe that has been around in my family for awhile and adapted in many different ways by my family members, myself, as well as plenty of people on the internet. You can find about twenty different versions of this recipe just by googling it. Thankfully, I’ve saved you the trouble… because this is the best version you’re going to find. ūüėČ

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups of fresh cranberries
2 cups of fresh strawberries
1/2 cup of sugar
2 six-ounce packages of pecans
2 cups of boiling water
3 three-ounce packages of strawberry gelatin
1 undrained, eight-ounce can of pineapple tidbits
9×13 pan

Preparation

  1. Finely dice the fresh cranberries using a food processor. Make sure to push down the chunks in between spins to get the cranberry very chopped with no big chunks.
  2. Dice the fresh strawberries by hand, making as small of pieces as possible.
  3. Mix the cranberries, strawberries, sugar, and pecans (amount for personal preference) in a medium-sized mixing bowl.
  4. Pour the strawberry gelatin into a large-sized mixing bowl.
  5. Bring the water to boil and then pour it into the large mixing bowl with the gelatin. Mix until all of the gelatin powder has dissolved.
  6. Pour the can of pineapple tidbits into the large mixing bowl and stir.
  7. Pour the cranberry mixture into the large mixing bowl and stir all of the ingredients until they are mixed together well.
  8. ¬†Pour the mixture into the 9×13 pan and place in the refrigerator for 8 hours or until firm.
  9. Once firm, spoon out servings and enjoy!
