Thanksgiving Punch for a Crowd ...this easy, fall beverage favorite will be a delicious option this Thanksgiving when entertaining your family and friends!

Hey all! Jessica from Fantabulosity here again, to share a fun Thanksgiving punch that my friends and I created the other day in our “test kitchen.” (Better known as, the kitchen in our house that becomes a test kitchen when we get to creating.) ;)

Thanksgiving Punch for a Crowd... gathering the ingredients

Thanksgiving Punch for a Crowd

The above ingredients were the final ingredients we nailed down, when experimenting. (Minus sliced apples for garnish of course.)

The beauty behind this recipe, is that you can play with the ingredients, to reach a level of flavor that you prefer, but I’ll make sure to include our favorite measurements below.

If you’re serving this Thanksgiving punch at home, or in a location where you can “play,” you can have a LOT of fun, dressing up the beverage station. Consider filling the beverage space with:

• Sliced apples (as a garnish, in the punch)

• Cinnamon sticks (as a garnish/drink stirrer)

• Drink dispenser, or fun pitcher

• Whole apples, for decor, staggered around outside of the drink dispenser

• Fall color-coordinated napkins/towels/tablecloth

• Peck/Bushel baskets to hold drink accessories

• Mason jars, milk bottles, or any fun/stylish glasses

What I also love about this punch, is that it can be served in 3 different ways!

• Room temperature, over ice

• Chilled in the refrigerator ahead of time

• Warm, and served in a crock pot

No matter which way you choose to serve this punch, remember to stir often, to keep the flavors blended.

Fun Tip:

Serve your Thanksgiving punch with an adorable drink stirrer.  Not only does it add a bit of pizzazz, but it encourages your guests to remember to stir it before each sip, enjoying all of the flavors of this punch.

    I was reading your thanksgiving punch recipe and noticed it called for Carmel syrup which typically has milk product in it. Do you have any suggestions for sweetening this punch with some besides Carmel or something containing milk (whey or caesin)? Agave?

    Thank you in advanced.

    Best Regards,

    Nova

      I’ve seen Caramel Syrup by the coffee/Italian soda syrups without milk products, and Agave would be a great addition!

    Do you use sugar free or regular carmel syrup? The picture shows sugar free, but the recipe doesn’t specify.

    Made this for a huge Thanksgiving dinner we hold at our parish and EVERYONE loved it……so much that I made it again the next night for another large group and again received raves about it. And so easy too!

    I can only find Salted Caramel syrup. I have gone to 3 different stores. Is there something else that I could use. I don’t want it to be salty.

      We had someone else use agave and they enjoyed it! Or you could add some maple syrup – I’d only add half of what you would have used for the caramel syrup and taste it and adjust from there. :)

      If you can store it in the fridge overnight, yes! Just give it a good stir before serving. :)
