-----Dancers and Dreamers and I am sponsoring Shannon's blog this month. I love sharing yummy recipes (probably because I like eating so much), so I decided to show you this one for hot punch.
As everyone knows, autumn is the time for walks outside in the crisp and cold air (the kind that makes your cheeks go red). Ever since I can remember, on special occasions, we would snuggle up with some blankets and drink something hot like this punch to get warm again once we were back at home. It is also a great drink if you have some guests coming over because it makes your home smell so delicious (and it is super-easy, too!). Even children can drink it because it is alcohol-free.
Here's the recipe:
Ingredients: 1 litre grape juice, 1 litre blackcurrant juice, 1 apple, 2 oranges, sugar, cinnamon, cloves.
Chop the apple and one of the oranges into cubes. Mix the juice and the chopped fruits and flavor it with sugar, cinnamon and cloves (I added about five) to your liking. Squash the second orange and put the juice in with the other ingredients. Bring everything to a simmer (it doesn't have to boil!). Once it is hot, your punch is finished!
PS: You can also add some red wine if you want to, both versions taste delicious. Cheers!
