7. Easy Does It Punch

I have documentably made this Aperol + grapefruit + bubbly punch for a Christmas party and watched it VANISH into thin air because it is very pretty and very delicious. It's also relatively gentle, so there's not much collateral damage. Get the recipe and instructions for making the ice ring.

8. Cashew Nut Nog

bonappetit.com

This is sort of like the spicy, sassy love child of horchata and eggnog — and it's a awesome vegan option if you just leave out the beaten egg whites. Definitely DON'T leave out the rum, though. That's important. Get the recipe.

9. Mulled Cranberry Apple Cider

gardenbetty.com

N.B. this recipe refers to bourbon as "optional" — that is incorrect. Get the recipe.

This is an easy mix of bourbon (Bulleit is nice, but any kind is fine), pomegranate juice, Champagne, and ginger liqueur. It's written as a single-serving ratio, so you can scale up to any amount for a jumbo party. Get the recipe.

18. Easy Breezy Punch

foodrepublic.com

Complex flavor, easy prep: Just stir together Campari, vermouth, chamomile tea, orange and grapefruit juice, and bitters. You can scale up the one-drink ratio for any number of drinkers. Get the recipe.

19. Milk Punch

This is essentially eggnog minus the weirdness of fussing with raw eggs. Still creamy, delicious, and full of bourbon. Get the recipe.

20. French 75 Punch

chroniclebooks.com

French 75's (gin, lemon, syrup, champagne) are elegant and delightful but would be a nightmare to make separately for every single guest. Self-serve is better. Get the recipe.
