Christmas Punch

Delicious Peppermint Christmas Punch is incredibly festive, takes minutes to make, and only has 3 ingredients!!

This peppermint flavored christmas punch is perfect for holiday gatherings. If you need more ways to use up all of those cute candy canes, try crunching them up in Peppermint Ice Cream or Brownies with a side of Peppermint Fluff!

Non alcoholic Christmas Punch

The whole family thinks this punch is DELICIOUS!!! It only has 3 ingredients – egg nog, Peppermint ice cream and Club Soda (my family prefers Ginger Ale or Sprite).

This punch is a great family-friendly drink for any get together, especially since it’s non-alcoholic and because the kids love ALL THINGS peppermint.

Not only do they love it because of the delicious peppermint flavor, but also because it’s simple and is the perfect holiday drink (other favorites include our Holiday Punch and Hot Cocoa).

Parents love it for all of those reasons but also because it takes just 2 minutes to make. 😉

Tips + Storing Info

The ice cream should be softened, but not melted. Let it sit on the counter for 5-10 minutes until you can make a dent in the ice cream with your finger. Do not microwave as it is not reliable.

FOR MAKING AHEAD, if you are going to drink it within a few hours make it last later a little longer by putting it in the fridge. For longer storage go ahead and STORE it in the freezer. When you’re ready to drink it thaw it enough to be placed in the blender. 

Another thing you can do with leftovers of this Christmas Punch is to pour it into a popsicle mold. FREEZE and you’ll have a frozen summer snack.

  1. Hi! I was just wondering what would be a good substitute if you can’t seem to find peppermint ice cream and don’t have the time to make any? Thanks!

    We are hot chocolate fans, but love this punch just as much. It helps make the holidays a little more festive when the Arizona winter is just too warm for hot chocolate.

    My family thinks I am so weird because I love adding ginger ale to eggnog. Adding peppermint ice cream is excellent!
