Holiday Cranberry Punch

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Leilani

My mother made this punch for many parties when we were growing up. She served it in her lovely, big punch bowl and I remember stirring it with the big glass spoon. My sisters and I weren't allowed to have any of it (as it contained alcohol) but I remember the lovely "clouds" of sherbet that floated on top. Now that my sisters and I are much older, we always have this punch at our holiday gatherings.

I just made this delicious punch for our annual Christmas Open House... it was a huge hit! Everyone loved it and begged me to make it again for our New Year's Eve get together. Thanks so much for sharing this delightful beverage.
