If you make one thing this holiday season, let it be this punch spiked with bourbon and Campari. A gorgeous ice ring makes it incredibly festive and just so pretty to look at. Guests will be charmed by the delicate pomegranate arils floating in the drink's ice ring as they ladle the sweet and tart punch into glasses. The bourbon is warming, the Campari offers its essential bitter notes, and citrus juice brightens this not-too-strong tipple. Shop for containers of pomegranate arils to cut back on prep time.
