Festive Hot Punch

My childhood memories of Christmas are full of sights, sounds, smells, and tastes.  This festive hot punch is one of those tastes.

Tomorrow I will be making this punch for the homeschool mom’s group that meets in my home once a month.  (I don’t have a 30-cup percolator (someday, I hope), so I make it in a large pot by simply putting my spices in a reusable tea bag or cheesecloth.)

Tomorrow night we will sit and chat and drink in the season…literally.  I am so looking forward to it!

Won’t you enjoy a cup with us?

Festive Hot Punch
46 oz. pineapple juice
64 oz. cranberry juice
3 c. water
3/4 c. brown sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
4 cinnamon sticks, broken
4 1/2 tsp. whole cloves

Combine pineapple juice, cranberry juice, water, brown sugar and salt in a 30 cup percolator (like this one) or in a large pot over medium-low heat.  Place cinnamon sticks and cloves in the filter and perk.  If making on the stovetop, place spices in a reusable tea bag and drop in the pot and warm.

  1. This sounds delicious!!! Thank you for posting. I pinned it. I’m excited to make this. Just yesterday I was searching for punch recipes! :) This year we’ve had so much fun starting new traditions, including doing an advent calendar& readings, and decorating gingerbread houses. This punch sounds like a delicious thing to have as an alternative to hot cocoa. I believe my husband and kids and family will love it! Thank you for sharing. Blessings to you and your family!
