About half of the bloggers there don’t drink and it’s the same at a party right?At any party, you’ll have someone that doesn’t drink or isn’t drinking to be the safe designated driver and I wanted to make sure that they weren’t left out.Plus I’d expect an actual salad with fresh greens and vegetables.But on holidays, the rules can be bent, and salads full of cream and marshmallows like this cranberry fluff salad fly under the radar!I made two pitchers one for each drink, with and without alcohol.Because the pitchers were identical I marked the one without alcohol with a napkin around the handle. With a label the pitchers could still get switched up. I’d also freeze some fresh cranberries and use them to garnish the drinks.
The reason I love these holidays is that I get to spend time with my friends and family!There were about 20 or 30 of us and I was in charge of the cocktail.I knew right away it was going to be a pitcher drink.I settled on the Cranberry Pineapple Punch because it was a beautiful color the this time of year but it also has a bit of a tropical flavor.It makes it taste so refreshing and ads a bit of sunshine into these dark winter days we’re heading into here in Portland.
I just shared them the other day so make sure you check it out. They’re so simple to make, you can mix them up ahead of time and people can serve themselves!
