It’s after Halloween, and I’m guilty of already thinking about Christmas. It’s hard not to considering the stores are already putting out the Black Friday adds and putting up the Christmas decorations. I haven’t started decorating or playing Christmas music yet, but I’ve definitely been dreaming up some recipes and cookie ideas. This White Christmas Punch is one of them. This white chocolate raspberry cake is another.
White Christmas is one of my favorite movies this time of year. It’s classic, and well Bing Crosby…need I say more? So I wanted to make a White Christmas recipe. I wanted something that was fun and pretty. But also the kind of punch that might have been served when the movie came out. (1954 for those wondering.) And I came up with this little beauty that is subtly sweet and creamy and of course gives you that snowy Christmas-y feel.
White Christmas Punch
2 cup cream of coconut
2 cup pineapple juice
3 cups white cranberry juice
4 cups ice
For Glass Rims:
3 tablespoons corn syrup
½ cup shredded coconut
Pour all ingredients into a blender.
Blend until smooth.
Dip glass rims into corn syrup, then dip into shredded coconut.
Pour drink into glasses.
Garnish with more coconut and cranberries if desired.
This recipe doesn’t include alcohol in order to keep it kid friendly for your parties, but you could easily add a few shots of rum or vodka to make this into a tasty adult beverage too!
So, what are your favorite Christmas movies?
