It’s important to celebrate those choosing to drink less, opt out or simply the DD of the night. We’re not about giving them simple Cranberry and Soda. Instead we’re building a delicious Rosemary & Clementine Holiday Punch Bowl that’s Alcohol-Free with a Nutty Tea, Clementine’s that are typically all around the house and Rosemary! This Punch is a must sip, plus easy to incorporate a Spirit such as Mezcal, Tequila or Vodka if you wish!

Building your Rosemary & Clementine Holiday Punch Bowl
The reason I’m building this particular punch is because I find this season starts to rain clementines. To ensure none of these delicious treats go to waste, I put together a delicious Punch that will sure to please every palate. The biggest thing about this particular punch is grabbing the right tea. I use David’s Tea Forever Nuts flavour because you get such a loud flavour of Almonds that work so well with the Clementines.
If you want to mix this punch with Alcohol, I recommend having a few different options on the side and allow guests to choose how they’d like to mix. Whether it be Irish Whiskey, Gin, Shochu, Sake, Vodka, Pisco, Tequila & Mezcal would work wonders here.
