I’m not sure I remember when I heard about my first Friendsgiving, but I have always been a HUGE fan. In the same way that Thanksgiving focuses on gratitude and togetherness, Friendsgiving provides the added element of gathering your closest friends for a literal celebration of your FRIENDSHIP. How great is that?
I’m realizing that this concept just gets more and more steam- both in the world around me and in my own every day life. Just in the last few weeks I’ve been part of: a new monthly whiskey tasting tradition at work, a hiking/biking/brunching extravaganza with almost forty other ladies at a sweet friend’s new farm, and my own Friendsgiving plans for next weekend: a sparkling wine party where everyone brings their favorite bottle. (We’re making all the fixings too.)
Izze wanted to inspire us gather our loved ones together by sending over some of their sparkling juice and I thought it’d be perfect for a big jug of punch! Punch is such a party necessity- it’s perfect for expecting moms/kids/those who are skipping the alcohol, provides a break between cocktails, and is, well, delicious. This punch is sweet and tart thanks to bright citrus flavors that ALSO make it extra colorful; scroll down for the recipe!
