Serve Up Some Tasty Holiday Punch This Winter!

*Disclosure- I received the mentioned product courtesy of the sponsor for the purpose of this review. All opinions are genuine, based on my experience with the product, and have not been influenced by promotional items.

Tis' the season for cooking, baking and parties. We usually start to plan our dinner menu and desserts ahead of time, but what about yummy holiday beverages? I sometimes think their importance to a holiday table is often overlooked. I saw this Holiday Punch recipe on Golden Blossom Honey recently, and knew it was something I wanted to try asap.

Even though it's served cold, with the addition of the cinnamon and ginger, it has a warmth to the overall taste. It is so delicious, and if you could give Christmas a flavor, it would be this holiday punch! The addition of the citrus fruits rounds out the overall flavor really nicely. You could also make this more of an adult beverage and spike it with some rum or maybe even a hit of vodka. Yum! 


Ingredients
4 cups water
1 cup GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
14 whole cloves
4 cinnamon sticks
4 (1/2-inch) slices fresh ginger
8 cups apple cider
3 cups orange juice
1 1/2 cups fresh lemon juice (about 8 large lemons)
rum optional
orange and lemon slices for garnish

    1. I just don't get the appeal of eggnog. Jason buys a carton of it every holiday and it just looks nasty!

  2. Id probably put tea in it instead of water to really make it a punch... but it looks so nom nom that I'd dip my whole face in it :)

  3. This looks really yummy! Will definitely have to try this Christmas Eve when all the grandparents are in town...my parents don't drink (at all) so we may just have to add splashes of rum or vodka to the other glasses. :) Yum!!

    1. I don't drink either, but a lot of my family does like to add a splash of alcohol to their beverages, so they'll have to add it on their own as well. I meant to say earlier, I am glad you enjoyed those pecan pie bars! I've been craving them a lot lately and have been thinking about making another batch, but with 3 birthdays this month, I am already going to be over doing it on the sugar intake from all the bday cake coming my way.
