Hot Holiday Punch

Hot Holiday Punch

A party isn’t a party without punch.

And my mom happens to make the best punch. So I, of course, borrow her recipe for all of our holiday occasions. And since we always visit with friends on New Year’s Eve, I usually bring a pot of this to simmer on the stovetop.

Not to mention it smells insanely good. The combination of baked oranges, cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg fill the house with the most warming aroma ever.

Switch It Up

I’ve adapted my mom’s original recipe using 3 cups of each juice to using slightly less pineapple and orange in favour of filtered water. I prefer to use a little more water to cut down on the excess of juice calories and amount of natural sugars. By adding the honey or stevia, you’re still able to have a beautifully sweet punch.

When I’m feeling super festive I’ll even make two versions of this punch. Instead of using orange and pineapple juices, I’ll sub in an equal amount of pomegranate juice. I love the idea of offering either an orange or red punch. I usually add pomegranate seeds to each cup as a garnish, too.

Hot Holiday Punch

Hot apple cider, orange juice, and pineapple juice make for a warming and festive holiday punch.
