Mixing fruit juices and 7UP makes this Sparkling Cranberry Apple Punch a delicious drink that everyone can enjoy. This is a great party punch!
I cannot even believe that 2016 is almost over! Our first year in Texas has gone by so quickly. It took some time to get adjusted, to learn a new culture, and to make new friends.
But we persevered and kept at it because we knew God had a plan for our family. It is always exciting (and sometimes scary and frustrating) when things in our life change. Am I right? Moving across the country to a new place wasn’t on our radar two years ago, but we knew a year ago that it was the right thing for our family. I’m so thankful for a husband who leads by example.
It has been an adventure, and there has been some crazy along the way, but we are all healthy and together and that is what matters most. We are ready for whatever the new year brings our way!
Do you have party plans for this weekend? This year we do not have any big plans for ringing in the new year. I’m thinking a movie, a batch of Butterfinger cookies and cream popcorn, and some pop or punch.
It’s so funny how as a kid you look forward to those nights when you can stay up late. Then as an adult you just want to curl up under the covers and go to sleep. Watch a ball drop? No thanks. I’m perfectly ok with watching my eyelids droop instead!
This easy sparkling cranberry apple punch is a great drink to make for any party because everyone can enjoy it.
We used a cranberry 7Up to boost the cranberry flavor even more, but you can use a regular 7UP or sprite. Just make sure you remember to stir the pop in right before you serve the punch because the fizz will disappear if you do it early. Or add champagne instead, if you want to make this an adult drink!
Floating fruit is a great way to make a punch a little more festive. Since this punch was a mixture of apple and cranberry juices, I threw a handful of fresh cranberries and apple chunks in the punch right before I served it too. A sprig of mint leaves in each glass gave it another fun flair. Feel free to serve it with colored straws instead.
