Your Guests Will Love This Sweet, Spiked Holiday Punch That's Packed With Superfoods

[brightcove:5191656555001 default]

Brimming with bright, winter wonder foods like grapefruit, pineapple, and cranberries—and yes, a bit of booze—this festive holiday punch will be the star of your next bash, without making you feel miserable the next day.

If you have the time, squeezing your own grapefruit juice really amps up the flavor, but don’t sweat it if you have to opt for the supermarket stuff. Another nice touch: Plan ahead of time and fill a plastic bowl with water and cranberries, then pop it in the freezer. You’ll be left with a jumbo, sparkly ice cube that will melt slowly without diluting the punch—and look super pretty, too.
