Pa Rum-Pum-Pum Punch

Made with only four ingredients, this holiday punch is the perfect cocktail to serve at your larger functions or holiday parties! The flavor is light and sweet, so it's perfect to serve alongside some of your favorite wintry appetizers. Here's all that you'll need for this punch:


  • 64 ounces cranberry juice
  • 2 liters (1 bottle) of Squirt soda
  • two 46 ounce cans of pineapple juice
  • 750 mL (1 bottle) of tequila silver

Simply add these ingredients into your favorite festive punch bowl and garnish with cranberries and limes! Don't forget to add in the ice cubes and stir well.

Mulled Wine

Mulled wine is such a Christmas classic. Perfectly paired while sitting around the fire and watching your favorite classic holiday film, There's nothing quite like a warm glass of mulled wine to end your evening. For your mulled wine, you'll need:


  • 2 bottles of red wine
  • 4 cups of apple cider
  • 1/2 cup of honey
  • 2 sliced oranges
  • 8 whole cloves
  • 12 black peppercorns
  • Cinnamon sticks and orange slices for garnish

Combine the red wines, cider, honey, cinnamon sticks, orange slices, peppercorns, and cloves into a pot. Simmer over low heat for 10-15 minutes. The leading North Carolina bar services recommend straining the drink to remove the cloves and peppercorns. Garnish your mug or other heatproof glass with a cinnamon stick and an orange slice!

Pomegranate Martini

For a festive cocktail party, we can't think of a more elegant mixed drink to serve! Whether you're having a small get-together or a large office party, POUR Bar Service, the leader in North Carolina bar services, would love to serve this up for you! For this cocktail, you'll need:


  • 1.5 ounces of gin or vodka

At the bottom of the martini glass, add a few pomegranate seeds. In a cocktail shaker, add ice, gin/vodka, simple syrup, pomegranate juice, and freshly squeezed lime juice. Shake! After this, strain into the martini glass and add a fresh lime slice. Enjoy!
