Hot Spiced Cider Punch

Hot Spiced Cider

On a cold winter evening, serve your guests Hot Spiced Cider Punch as they arrive. The aroma in the room will be so inviting and the hot punch will be just what is needed for a quick warm-up! What I like about it that it is ready to go when your guests arrive. There’s no last-minute preparation and anything left over is still good to use the next day. I use a large coffee percolator to keep it warm and ready to serve. This is a great non-alcoholic cider punch for any winter get-together.


Hot Spiced Cider Punch

1 gallon cider

1/2 cup sugar

1 stick cinnamon

5 whole cloves

Simmer these ingredients for 30 minutes.  You can make this in a saucepan over the stove or in a coffee urn.

When I use a coffee urn, I place the first ingredients in the basket and pour the cider in the coffee urn. I let it perk through the cycle and get hot. Then, I remove the basket and add the O.J., Lemon Juice, tea and mix together.



1/2 cup orange juice concentrate – do not dilute the concentrate

2 Tablespoons lemon juice

1 teaspoon instant tea or 2 tea bags

Let everything get hot and serve.


 This is so quick and easy to make. We served this at the last Christmas women’s event at church and they loved it!

Holiday Punch (quick and easy)

Holiday Punch - quick and easy

Three ingredients is all that is necessary to put together this great non-alcoholic holiday punch! It is quick and easy, but tastes delicious. I recently served this at an event and people repeatedly asked for the recipe! Thought I’d share it with you!

Holiday Punch Ingredients:

1 large bottle of CranRaspberry Juice (chilled) 64oz.

1 quart of vanilla ice cream

1 bottle of ginger ale ( or cranberry ginger ale) chilled



Just before ready to serve, pour cran-raspberry juice into punch bowl. Spoon in scoops of ice cream.  Pour ginger ale over ice cream and stir to foam up (I use about 1/3 to 1/2 bottle of ginger ale).  Makes 12 -15–6 oz. servings.


Now, that’s quick and easy plus delicious and pretty!
