I am so excited that our bellies are full of our Thanksgiving dinners and we can finally start celebrating Christmas! If you were like me, you might have started a little early, but now it’s socially acceptable! It’s time for Christmas music, Christmas shopping, and best of all, all things holiday food and drink!
Nothing makes me feel more in the holiday spirit than enjoying a holiday themed beverage. It just feels so Christmas-card perfect to sip on a sweet drink while cozying up with family or spending time with friends. I’m usually a hot chocolate junkie when the weather gets cooler, and I’ve already enjoyed a few cups of it this year, but sometimes you just need a cooler drink to celebrate with. Enter the perfect holiday drink, peppermint punch! Perfect for a quick and easy beverage for holiday guests, or to enjoy fireside with your family.
Even better is that it only consists of 3 ingredients, so head to Target with the following shopping list:
7UP® and/or Cherry 7UP®
peppermint ice cream
Bonus: Those cute glasses are also from Target :) AND you can get great deals on soda using the Ibotta app. Their current deals are:
- Save $.75 when you buy two 2-liter bottles (varieties include: 7UP®, A&W®, Canada Dry® Ginger Ale, RC® Cola, Sundrop®, Sunkist® Orange, Squirt®, Country Time®, Diet Rite®, Vernors®, Cactus Cooler® and Hawaiian Punch®)
- Save $2.00 when you buy four 12-pack cans (varieties include: 7UP®, A&W®, Canada Dry® Ginger Ale, RC® Cola, Sundrop®, Sunkist® Orange, Squirt®, Country Time®, Diet Rite®, Vernors®, Cactus Cooler®, Hawaiian Punch® and Tahitian Treat)
The following recipe makes 1 serving:
1/2 cup peppermint ice cream
1 cup 7UP® or Cherry 7UP®
1 candy cane
Step one: Scoop 1/2 cup of peppermint ice cream into glass
Step two: Add 1 cup of 7UP® or Cherry 7UP®, or fill glass
Fun Tip: Use 7UP® for half the drinks and Cherry 7UP® for the other half for green AND red drinks to add to the festive decor of a holiday party
Step three: Garnish with candy cane
(Optional) Step four: Add one shot of peppermint schnapps for a little extra flavor and fun!
To make this punch for a holiday get together, combine 2 liters of 7UP® to one container of peppermint ice cream. Set out a bowl of candy canes for guests to add to their drinks and you’re done!
This drink is my favorite because it combines my favorite things, soda and ice cream and the occasional shot of schnapps!
