1 liter ginger ale

Fresh cranberries, for the ice cubes

4 cups cranberry juice, chilled

1 bottle champagne, chilled

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice (about 2 lemons)

12 ounces vodka, optional

1 orange, sliced


  1. Pour half of the ginger ale into ice cube trays, add a few cranberries to each compartment and freeze until almost solid, at least 4 hours.
  2. Add the cranberry juice, champagne, lemon juice, remaining ginger ale and vodka if using to a punch bowl and stir to combine. Add the ginger ale-cranberry ice cubes and sliced oranges to the punch.

Cook’s Note

Freezing ginger ale into ice cubes prevents the punch from becoming watery.
