Fruited Punch

We all want our guests to have a rousing good time at the Christmas party, but first and foremost, we want them to be safe! Prevent guests from over indulging by serving plenty of finger foods, bottled water and a variety of interesting non-alcoholic drinks such as this classic fruit punch.
