  • 2 cups sparkling cranberry juice
  • 1 cup bourbon
  • 1/2 cup Amaretto
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1 orange thinly sliced for garnish
  • 1 lemon thinly sliced for garnish
  • 1/2 cup whole cranberries for garnish
  • 4 sprigs rosemary for garnish
  • 3 cinnamon sticks


  • Add the sparkling cranberry juice, bourbon, amaretto, orange and lemon juice to the punch bowl.
  •  Add the fruit slices, cranberries, and two cinnamon sticks to the punch bowl.
  • To serve, ladle some punch into a glass with ice and garnish with a sprig of rosemary and a bit of freshly grated cinnamon.



  • The proportions. The recipe detailed below will make a batch that serves 4. I made it smaller on purpose so those that aren’t serving large crowds can partake and you can easily adjust it for your particular needs.
  • You can double, triple or quadruple the Cranberry Thanksgiving punch recipe as needed to satisfy your guests.
  • Freshly squeezed lemon and orange juice are best for this recipe. If I had to decide, I'd say definitely go for the fresh lemon juice and use store-bought orange juice! 
  • If adding CBD, start with a small amount and add more if you’d like.
