The Best Christmas Punch Recipes
When should you serve Christmas punch? Anytime, really but it’s especially delicious with dessert and would pair perfectly with our Gluten-Free Gingerbread Cookies. It’s also a welcoming refreshment for guests when they first arrive to your home for a holiday get-together.
Christmas Punch with a Punch!
- 4 cups brewed black tea
- 1 ¼ cups Coco Treasure Coconut Sugar
- ¾ cup fresh lemon juice about four lemons
- 1 cup fresh orange juice about three oranges
- 8-10 cloves
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- 2 bottles full-bodied red wine such as a Zinfandel or Pinot Noir
- 1 cup golden rum
Place the coconut sugar and hot tea into a large pot. Add the rest of the ingredients except the wine and rum. Heat on low until the sugar is completely dissolved. Add wine and rum, continue to heat on low heat. The punch should be hot like a cup of tea or coffee, but not boiling.
Ladle into mugs and top with a dollop of whipped cream which has been spiced with cinnamon.
Garnish with slices of lemon and orange.
For a non-alcoholic version of this Christmas punch, delete the wine and rum and add 1 liter of apple cider instead.
