Dust off your punch bowl, we’re making Holiday Rum Punch for a crowd!

Your holidays will get tropical with Holiday Rum Punch. Find the recipe on Shutterbean.com!

This punch is inspired by one of the drinks I had on my trip to Jamaica for the Click Retreat last month. It’s totally tropical but deceptively holiday-ish with the orange and the cranberry garnishes. If you make this at a holiday party people will be like…oooooh and then ahhhhhhhh.

Think:

This punch is a real crowd pleaser with rum, orange juice, pineapple juice, grenadine, ginger beer and sparkling water. If you want to serve this during warmer times, just garnish with maraschino cherries instead of cranberries.

Jasmine Tea Infused Vodka

Jasmine Tea Infused Vodka to up your spirit game. Find the recipe on Shutterbean.com!

Gift giving changes a lot as we get older. We’re not children huddled around the tree waiting (impatiently) for their turn to open presents. We’re adults managing more than we’ve ever had to while figuring out how to muster up a satisfactory amount of holiday magic and sparkle during the home stretch of another exhaustingly full year.

No?

Just me?

What does it mean to give a gift?

(I actually googled that and found this really good article).

It means that you were thinking of someone else. You were putting energy into make someone feel happy and special.  You were taking a moment to be thoughtful and spread cheer. You gave the gift of your time.

Jasmine Tea Infused Vodka to up your spirit game. Find the recipe on Shutterbean.com!

What it really comes down to, and what my parents said to us kids when we got gifts like Miss Piggy bow biters from my Auntie Toni:

It’s the thought that counts.

Jasmine Tea Infused Vodka to up your spirit game. Find the recipe on Shutterbean.com!

Sometimes we don’t give gifts because we don’t have enough time.

Time can be carved out if you’re thoughtful enough.

This Jasmine Tea Infused Vodka is one of the simplest ways to show you’re thinking of your friend or family member who appreciates spirits as gifts. If you’ve gotta see someone in the afternoon or evening, all you have to do is let jasmine tea steep in vodka for about 2-3 hours in the morning, strain it and package it up and you’re good to go!  Just put effort into the wrapping + packaging.  That’s a gift in itself!
