Substitutions & Variations
This is a truly festive cocktail as is, but you can change it up a little too.
- Sprinkle Rim. You can dip the rim of the glass in some colored sugar or black sugar sprinkles before serving.
- Dry Ice - I personally do not like to use dry ice. However, this video shows you how to use dry ice in a punch bowl safely.
- cranberry juice - the cranberry can be replaced with a dark grape juice or pomegranite juice.
Serve in a large punch bowl or in pitchers. I do not recommend a container with the spout as the fruit will get stuck.
You can use highball glasses or martini glasses or stemless wine glasses.
