Festive Cran Raspeberry Punch

Rest up  GMG FOB’s, ther is only five days until we say goodbye to 2013 and hello to 2014! Who is ready to  toast the new year in with a delicious adult beverage? Now that the silver, china and crystal are washed  and neatly stacked  back in the china cabinet, it’s time to switch gears and start planning our New Years Eve Celebrations!  Several years ago my girlfriend Kerri served a  punch during  a holiday party that was dangerously delicious and refreshing! It was and still is a big hit among my friends every time she makes it. Last weekend I snapped this photo of her whipping up a special batch for us during our friend Tanya’s annual Cookie Gala. Kerri’s recipe is easy to prepare, and can be tweaked to your likeness in strength by adding more or less alcohol. I think this festive punch is the perfect adult drink to serve to guests on New Years Eve, while waiting for the Crystal Ball to drop! Cheers to the New Year!
