Mulled Cranberry and Orange Punch

Sunday, November 29, 2009

One of my favorite parts about the onset of cooler weather each year is the perfect excuse I have to get warmed back up again with a  comforting mug of hot cider.  I love the flavor of this recipe I got from my friend Heather--it's not too sweet and not too sour and looks so festive with its red/pink color!  We served this up as part of our Thanksgiving dinner and the kids liked it just as much as the adults.

The ingredients:

2 cups water
4 cups cranberry juice
1 cup orange juice
1/2 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup sugar
2 cinnamon sticks
1 tsp. whole cloves

Combine everything together and heat until boiling.  Simmer on stovetop or mull in crockpot for 1 hour.  If desired, strain punch before serving to remove cloves and cinnamon sticks.  Serve hot.
