Cheerwine’s Holiday Punch is back this Christmas season, in part thanks to some local Carolinians.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (QC Life) - A popular soft drink born and bred in the heart of the Carolinas is putting together a special holiday recipe this year, courtesy of some local community members.

Cheerwine, which originated in Salisbury, N.C., is bringing back its Holiday Punch this year, partnering with 14 local chefs, mixologists and well-known community members in the process.

The Holiday Punch is on sale now and can be purchased here.
