TIP OF THE DAY: Make A Holiday Punch

A punch bowl is not only a special attraction at holiday festivities; it saves the hosts the effort of pouring 20 separate drinks. Guests can help themselves!

With the flavors of Campari (a red apéritif made from fruits and herbs) and pink grapefruit, this winter recipe will please from Thanksgiving until spring.

The recipe was developed as part of a partnership between Belvedere (RED) vodka and (RED), the fundraising campaign that raises money for the Global Fund, the world’s leading financer of programs to fight HIV/AIDS in Africa.

There’s a special edition holiday bottle design of Belvedere (RED) vodka on retailers’ shelves. Fifty percent of profits from its sale will be contributed to the Global Fund.



  • 7 ounces vodka
  • 3 ounces Campari
  • 3 ounces vermouth
  • 5.5 ounces pink grapefruit juice
  • 16 ounces soda water

  • Garnish: slices of pink grapefruit and orange (get a blood orange if you can), strawberries
    1. Combine first five ingredients in a punch bowl.
    2. Top with ice, mix and top with the garnishes. (We added the strawberries with leaves on, not part of the original recipe, for a red-and-green garnish accent).
    3. Serve.


    There are punch recipes for every season. Treat yourself to an affordable punch bowl and make punch a part of your regular entertaining menu.

    Two glass punch bowls we like are:

  • An elegant, daisy-etched glass punch bowl.
  • A simple but notable modern design.
    While acrylic punch bowls are inexpensive, we suggest avoiding them: They scratch easily.
