This festive holiday punch is made with tart pomegranate and lime juice, aged Jamaican rum, simple syrup, and a touch of orange bitters. Just before serving, top it off with your favorite dry sparkling wine, like cava, Prosecco, or champagne. And to make it extra festive, we’ve included instructions on how to make a beautiful pomegranate-and-lime ice block to keep it chilled.
Game plan: You can make the punch base and chill it up to 8 hours ahead. Transfer it to a punch bowl and add the sparkling wine when you’re ready to serve.
Watch the CHOW Test Kitchen’s Lisa Lavery make this delicious sparkling punch in an episode of our Easiest Way video series.
