It has been a few years since my father-in-law passed away, but I remember that he always enjoyed the holiday season. If there was anything that he looked forward to at holiday parties, it was a good cup of punch. He loved punch! A combination of fruit and Sprite® was like heaven in a cup. Although he is no longer here to celebrate the holidays with us, my husband and I still carry on the tradition of enjoying holiday punch. We sometimes experiment with different combos, but our preference for the holiday season is this Cranberry Apple Punch. With its festive colors and tart flavor, it is a crowd favorite at holiday gatherings!
A tasty punch is only as good as its ingredients. Sprite® is known for adding fizz to punch recipes, but Sprite® Cranberry includes the merriest of berries for this time of the year. It is my favorite soda to add to this Cranberry Apple Punch. It is easy to add to this festive holiday beverage. Find it at your local Kroger in the soda aisle. Coca-Cola® and Kroger make holiday parties brighter! Pick up all ingredients to make this recipe and all your other holiday recipe favorites at Kroger.

- 2 cups Sprite® Cranberry
- Cranberries, rinsed
- Apple pieces
- Optional: ice cubes
The Simply® 100% Apple Juice and Simply® Cranberry Cocktail are included in the refrigerated section of your local Kroger, so these items will already be cold. Be sure to chill the Sprite® Cranberry, cranberries, and apple pieces prior to making this easy Cranberry Apple Punch recipe for the holidays.
This recipe can be made a few hours in advance.
In a punch bowl, pitcher, or small beverage dispenser, add 2 cups Simply® 100% Apple Juice and 2 cups Simply® Cranberry Cocktail. Stir to combine.
Add cranberries and apple pieces. There is no exact measurement of cranberries and apple pieces. Include what looks festive in the container.
If not serving right away, place the beverage dispenser or pitcher in the refrigerator.
When ready to serve, add 2 cups of Sprite® Cranberry. Stir to combine.
While your ingredients may be chilled, you can also serve the punch over ice cubes.
