Part of the fun of making festive punch recipes is it only take a minute to put together!

To make this, start by adding the juice, jam and soda to a punch bowl. Whisk them together until they are evenly combined.

Ladle the punch into glasses and serve each glass topped with an ice cream scoop snowball.

This snowball punch recipe yields roughly 24 1 cup servings, or 48 1/2 cup servings.

Also, there shouldn’t be any need to add ice to the actual punch, as the scooped ice cream will cool it off.

Tips and Tricks

  • Make sure the raspberry jam is seedless. Seeded jam will make for an unappealing texture in the drink.
  • When you scoop the ice cream into the drink, take care not to agitate the drink too much. If you mix it up while scooping, the punch will turn more pink than red.
  • To keep the punch mixture cool, set the punch bowl into a cooler full of ice.
