Jingle Juice recipe

Every holiday celebration in the month of December deserves a signature drink, if you ask me. I love to make Yule Mules for the holidays, but I also love trying new drinks out on my friends and family.

This year, I’m making Jingle Juice, a grown-up holiday cocktail spin on the jungle juice of my college days.

It’s made with sweet pink moscato wine, white cranberry juice and vanilla vodka. It has hints of citrus and maple and is garnished with cranberries and rosemary. The result is a crushable, festive drink that everyone will love.

Tools & glassware

Jingle Juice is a cranberry holiday punch that can be made right in the pitcher. You can also prepare it in a mixing bowl and decant it into the pitcher later. You’ll want a spatula or wooden spoon with a long handle for stirring.

For serving, you’ll want a large pitcher, large punch bowl or party drink dispenser, plus wine glasses or rocks glasses for sipping the drinks.

You might need a wine opener for your wine bottle. We love our electric wine opener — there’s so much less struggle with one of these! (They make great hostess gifts, too.)

Ingredients

You can find all the ingredients for holiday Jingle Juice at your local supermarket and liquor store. Here’s what you’ll need to make this recipe:

  • Pink Moscato wine: You can also use white zinfandel, rosé or any other sweet pink wine. If you use a sparkling pink wine, double up on the wine and skip the lemon-lime soda.
  • White cranberry juice: You can also use white grape juice here.
  • Vanilla vodka: You can make your own vanilla vodka from regular vodka and vanilla extract or simply use regular vodka. The rest of the ingredients are sweet enough, but the hint of vanilla flavor takes this drink to the next level.
  • Triple sec: Any clear orange liqueur will work here. You can also use Cointreau if you want it to be a little more top shelf.
  • Maple syrup: Maple syrup adds another hint of holiday flavor, but you can skip it if you don’t want to add any extra sweetener. You can also use plain simple syrup.
  • Grenadine: This pomegranate syrup is a cocktail staple that brightens the color of this drink and adds a little bit of sweetness.
  • Lemon-lime soda: This adds some gentle citrus flavor and bubbles. You can also use ginger ale.
  • Cranberries: You can use fresh or frozen berries. I used fresh, but frozen will act like ice cubes. Sugared cranberries would also be beautiful skewered on a cocktail pick.
  • Rosemary sprigs: Fresh herbs add a little bit of fragrance and the green gives it an extra festive touch. You could use fresh thyme, mint leaves or skip the herbs if they don’t appeal to you. Lime slices can be an additional garnish for extra flair.

What to serve with Jingle Juice

Jingle Juice is the perfect drink for holiday parties!

During appetizers, serve it with a Santa charcuterie board or holiday popcorn tins.

Sausage balls and cranberry brie bites would also be delicious savory noshes.

For dessert, anything fruity would be delicious. Lemon drop cookies and white chocolate cranberry oatmeal cookies are two Christmas cookies that would be perfect.

FAQ

Can I use a different type of wine if I don’t have pink moscato?

You can use white zinfandel or any rosé wine. You can also use plain moscato. Grenadine will add some of the pink color.

Is there a substitute for vanilla vodka if I don’t have it on hand?

You can use plain vodka instead. You can also make vanilla vodka by adding vanilla extract to plain vodka. For one cup of vodka, you will need 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.

Can I omit the rosemary sprigs if I don’t like that flavor, or is there a good alternative garnish?

You can absolutely skip the rosemary. You can use mint, thyme or sage instead, or simply skip the herb garnish altogether.
