Thinking of Drinking: Christmas Party Punch

Get this punch ready for the holidays!

1 cup Cranberry Apple Vodka

2 bottles of Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau wine

1 cup apple cider

2 clementines, sliced thin, peel on

2 granny smith apples, cored and diced

1/2 cup pomegranate arils 

Rosemary to garnish each glass 

½ cup gingerbread syrup

Mix wine, liquor, cider, and fruit in a large pitcher. Serve over ice and garnish with rosemary. 

*Best if made the night before so the fruit can soak and the flavors blend.

Gingerbread Simple Syrup

1 cup sugar

1 cup water

1 teaspoon ground ginger

¼ teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon clove

Combine sugar and water in pot. Cook over medium-high heat until sugar dissolves.

Reduce heat to medium-low and add ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. Simmer for 15-20 minutes.

Transfer to a bowl and cool to room temperature (about two hours).

Pour into a bottle, and refrigerate.
