I tried this punch on christmas eve and it was fantastic. Very refreshing and a nice option for the non drinkers in the house. I plan to have it on hand at our new years day dinner. Here is the recipe, very simple and not to sweet as some can be.
I hope you enjoy it as much as our gang does.
7 cups chilled cranberry juice
2 cinnamon sticks
1 cup cranberry juice - frozen into ice cubes
2 1/3 cups chilled orange juice
1 orange, sliced in rings
1 lemon, sliced in rings
1 lime, sliced in rings
2 cups crushed ice
Optional - 2/3 cup Grand Marnier or Cointreau
Add the cinnamon sticks and cloves to the cranberry juice 12 hours in advance.
In an ice tray, freeze the 1 cup of cranberry juice in to cubes.
Remove spices from juice. Add orange juice and sliced fruit to juice.
Just before serving add the crushed ice, cranberry ice cubes and if desired, liquer.
There you have it. Really, really refreshing punch.
