Re-Blog: Holiday Cheer Punch Recipe


Last year I shared this holiday punch recipe and I have made it this year again. It's as good as ever! It's really become a holiday staple at the Baer's. 

We have served this punch a few times this holiday season and our guests seem to really enjoy it.  It is sweet, spicy and sour, and great because designated drivers and young children can enjoy it without getting tipsy. (The alcohol is added upon serving).  It warms my belly during the holidays and fills me with glee, that's why I've named it Holiday Cheer!

Have a lovely sunday.





It's time to think of others and share gifts. Action House, the creative collective I am a part of here in Heidelberg, is putting on a DIY Christmas Workshop this Friday evening. We'll drink some Gleuhwein (mulled wine) and make gifts together. I'm going to be leading some linoleum print christmas card making, at the #Weihnachtswerkstatt. There will be all kinds of DIY christmas gift ideas and time for making.

2. Fancy boots.
4. A white comfy sweater.

What are your winter essentials?



Christmas Cheer


Christmas cheer keeps me from getting grumpy during the start of winter. I'm a big fan of Christmas tunes, cookies, decorations, and punch. It's nice to have a tree this year. I don't have many decorations for it, but the ones we do have look just lovely.
