The good news is that you can enjoy Michigan's favorite Christmas drink with alcohol or without. This holiday spirit can be created with your taste in mind. Ingredients can include cranberry juice, orange juice, or both. Apple cider and ginger ale are nice additions too.

If you do want to booze this Christmas drink up, add some rum, vodka, sparkling wine, or even tequila if you dare.

With the ingredients listed above, have you guessed what Michigan's favorite Christmas drink is? According to Tasting Table, the answer is Christmas Punch.

Results were determined over Google searches over the last year. If you want a more specific recipe for Christmas Punch, Well Plated posted the following ingredients for the perfect batch,

  • 5 cups 100% cranberry juice
  • 2 bottles of dry sparkling wine
  • One and a half cups of dark rum
  • 2 cups apple cider
