I am so excited to spend time with my friends and family this holiday season. We love getting together to share laughs, great food and cocktails!
Before I had kids, I used to spend hours planning and making sure everything was just perfect for our parties. Now that I’m a Mom with two young kids, I don’t have the time or energy to do that, so I get a little help from Sam’s Club. They make shopping for holiday gatherings so easy, and really help take the stress out of entertaining.
I love buying my family’s favorite party snacks in bulk. A huge container of Member’s Mark Deluxe Mixed Nuts with Sea Salt is seriously such a time saver, and a 2 pack of Simply Lemonade® is great for keeping my punch bowl full all night!
Nuts are a fantastic snack to have at a party. Everyone loves them, and they go great with drinks. There’s no need to worry about baking something, making a mess in the kitchen, keeping it warm or refrigerated. You can just leave them out, relax and enjoy the party with your friends and family.
I absolutely love the variety in this package. It includes cashews, almonds, pecans, hazelnuts and blanched almonds. It’s such a great mix!
I especially like that I can just fill up some festive cups with these nuts, and they are good to go!
I just leave these cups out on the table next to my punch bowl, and guests can easily help themselves when they want something to munch on. It’s so quick and easy!
Having a big bowl of punch at my parties is an absolute must for me. It’s something I can prepare ahead of time, and I don’t have to worry about constantly getting drinks for my guests. They can just help themselves.
Making a festive party punch doesn’t have to be complicated. I usually just pick a few different flavors I know will work together, and run with it. This year, I thought it would be great to pair cherry and pomegranate flavors with Simply Lemonade®. It’s a perfect holiday flavor combination that tastes absolutely delicious.
3 cups Simply Lemonade®
2 cups tart cherry juice
2 cups pomegranate juice
4 cups vodka (optional)
4 cups seltzer water
Pour all ingredients into a large punch bowl and gently mix to combine. Add the seltzer water in last to retain its fizz.
Add large ice cubes or an ice ring to keep punch cold. Garnish with lemon slices, pomegranate arils and frozen dark sweet cherries, if desired.
Head to Sam’s Club to pick up Simply Lemonade® and Member’s Mark Nuts for your next holiday gathering. It will save you so much time!
