Nothing really says “festive holiday party” like a Warm Holiday Punch. There’s something inviting and comforting about a holiday punch that my guests really seem to enjoy. For me, it reminds me of friends and family and years gone by.

In keeping with holiday tradition, this warm holiday punch comes together quickly and stays warm in the slow cooker.  I’ve topped mine with beautiful slices of fresh fruit. This is a stunning presentation and can be made either alcoholic or non-alcoholic.

I’ve floated slices of oranges, apples, and cranberries atop our punch. My favorite fruit though is the carambola fruit which looks like beautiful, yellow stars floating in the punch. If you’ve never tried one, you should! They are mild-flavored with a firm flesh which usually tastes sweet but can sometimes be tart, too.

  1. Made this for a party but chilled it. Came out amazing. I omitted the fresh cranberries and just used apples and star fruit.
