This tree trimming punch is the most perfect christmas punch to drink while decorating the tree! Rich red wine is the base and there's a bit of orange, some spice, cinnamon and a gorgeous jeweled holiday ice cubes!
Note: if you want to make festive ice cubes, add some cranberries, pomegranate and rosemary to an ice cube tray and fill it with hot water. Freeze overnight!
Add the ice cubes and orange slices to the bottom of a punch bowl. Stir together the syrup, orange juice, grand marnier, pom soda, lambrusco and club soda. Serve immediately! Enjoy.
autumn simple syrup
Combine all ingredients together in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Whisk constantly until the sugar dissolves and let simmer for 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool completely. You can store this in the fridge for a few days – I keep the spices and rind in the syrup for flavor, but remove right before using.
