Holiday Cocktails HEADER EN

 

Holiday punches are some of the EASIEST ways to celebrate the flavours of the season and spruce up your holiday party. A big bowl of vodka and cranberry is an easy classic, but we’re kicking it up a notch with some special flavours from your local ANBL store. 

We’ve compiled 8 of our favourite punch recipes for the season using wine, coolers, and cider like Georgian Bay Gin Smash, Black Fly, Somersby Semi Dry Cider and more. Some of these recipes keep it simple with easy-to-find ingredients like fruit juice, eggnog, and sparkling water, but we challenge you to use some fresh and unique ingredients like caramel flavouring syrup, rosemary, and fresh cranberries.

Add even more variety to your holiday party with amazing deals from the 6 Weeks of Savings promotion – new deals every week until New Year’s Day.
