Recipe for Spiced Cranberry Punch

Cranberry Punch has such a lovely color and it is so suitable for Christmas parties. The spices give it a lovely flavour. Can be served hot or cold. If serving cold, I like to use a block of orange juice in the punch bowl rather than ice cubes. I put the juice in a small bowl then freeze it. This way the ice melts slowly and ads to the flavor of the punch rather than dilute it.

INGREDIENTS for Spiced Cranberry Punch

  • ⅓ cup packed Brown Sugar 75 ml
  • 1 can Frozen Cranberry Cocktail Concentrate 275ml
  • 2 cups Water 500 ml
  • 1 cup Orange Juice 250 ml
  • 8 Whole Cloves 8
  • 2 sticks Cinnamon 2
  • 2 Limes, thinly sliced 2
  • 1 bottle Ginger Ale (optional) 750 ml
  • Ice Cubes

METHOD for Spiced Cranberry Punch

In large saucepan, combine sugar, cranberry cocktail concentrate, water, orange juice, cloves and cinnamon. Stir until sugar has dissolved. Bring to boil; reduce and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove spices. Serve immediately with lime slice floating on top of each mugful. Or chill and at serving time, add ginger ale (if using); pour over ice and serve with lime slices. Makes 10 to 12 servings.
