Looking for a delicious refreshment to serve your guests this holiday season? Try this Cheerwine Holiday Punch recipe! It’s unique, tasty, and festive!
I love rolling out holiday recipes this time of year and today’s recipe is uniquely North Carolina. Cheerwine Holiday Punch is made with the Tar Heel State’s signature soda, Cheerwine. This cherry flavored soda holds a lot of memories for me.
I was first introduced to it on a summer church trip in middle school. All it took was just one sip and I was hooked! Every road trip after that went to or through North Carolina, I had to get my Cheerwine fix. Quite a few years later, I was able to get all the Cheerwine that I wanted while going to college in NC. It was definitely a perk for me at the time.
Since moving back to North Carolina several years ago, I still enjoy the occasional Cheerwine. I love it but I’m more conscientious about my caloric and sugar intake now then I was back then. The holidays, however, are made for splurging and I love whipping up a batch of this yummy Cheerwine Holiday Punch.
If you’ve never had the chance to try Cheerwine before, it’s similar to Cherry Dr. Pepper but I think it tastes better. Cheerwine’s unique taste makes it a central ingredient in many different recipes from cakes to barbecue sauces. One of my favorite treats is a Cheerwine float from Cookout! It’s ah-mazing! Especially in the summertime!
Since Cheerwine is one of my favorite sodas, I just had to try this Cheerwine Holiday Punch when I came across the recipe a few years ago. The best part about this recipe is that it is super simple! Your friends and family will love it when you serve it at your next holiday gathering!
Cheerwine isn’t exclusive to North Carolina anymore, not long before I moved back up here I started to notice it in a few Publix grocery stores in Florida. Go figure! If you’re not sure if Cheerwine is available for purchase in your area, check their website.
I suppose if it’s not sold in your area you could substitute the Cheerwine for Cherry Dr. Pepper. It won’t taste the same, but it will be similar.
I hope you enjoy this Cheerwine Holiday Punch as much as we do! If you love Cheerwine or know someone who does, please share this post with all your friends and family. Just click on the social media icons below! Have a wonderful weekend!
