    Default Winter punch



    We used to make this in a large crockpot or even a coffee urn
    for many different events. The proportions are variable.

    Simmer together for at least 1/2 hour:

    1 gallon cranberry juice (the real stuff, not "juice drink")
    1/2 gallon orange juice
    Tea ball or cheesecloth containing:
    1 cinnamon stick, cut in half or thirds
    1/2 tsp. whole cloves
    1 nutmeg, broken or cracked

    Remove spices before serving.
    Serve in punch cups with honey and lime or lemon wedges
    for individuals to add to taste. It's good with a little
    Southern Comfort, too.

    So that must not use cranberry juice "cocktail"? How tart is this?

    Just curious,

    A "little" Southern Comfort? A lot is more the thing! A lot of Bourbon
    is another option!

    Cocktail is acceptable. "Juice Drink" doesn't have much flavor. If you
    use real juice, the honey works well as a sweetener.
