Fizzy Citrus Swizzle Punch

In Beverages, Let's Eat, Recipes by the dirty hippie and the bohemian girl0 Comments

Winter means citrus is back in season. This bright cocktail will really show off the freshness of oranges, grapefruit and lime, with the sweetness coming from a candy swizzle stick in each glass. You can make this punch for all ages by using ginger ale for the fizz or make a grown up version with sparkling white wine. Our Fizzy Citrus Swizzle Punch is great for parties and guests. It’s light enough for brunch and festive enough for the nightlife – like a New Year’s Eve party. The tart of the grapefruit is cut by the swizzle stick – which also makes an adorable presentation.

Not sure about hand-juicing all that citrus? We strongly encourage you to use fresh juice. Not only does it taste much better, but it actually looks different. Pastuerized juices are cloudier and flavor is lost. If you’re in a rush, ask your local juice bar to help out by juicing for you. Some grocers also carry freshly squeezed orange and grapefruit juices.

But wait – what’s a swizzle stick?? You know this. You really do. It’s rock candy on a wooden stick. We found them at two local candy shops as well as two local grocers. You can also get them online. These classics are fun to eat and are a homerun for the look of your drinks. Everyone will enjoy the swizzle stick!

As written, this recipe will make about 8 portions, depending on the size of your serving glasses.  It is vegan, gluten-free and nut-free. Bottoms up!
