Apple Cider Citrus Punch

This recipe is really more juice-like than punch-like, but it’s light, refreshing and something the kids will enjoy maybe more than the adults. It would go well at a fall party for children. Or perhaps welcomed by the kid at heart.

When I think of this punch, I recall the kids I took photographs of all dressed up for Halloween in August. I can’t help but laugh and remember the looks on the faces of passersby who must have thought we were totally and completely insane.

3/4 cup cran raspberry concentrate, thawed
Peel of 1 orange

Warm the ingredients in a large saucepan over medium low heat. Serve immediately for warm drinks, or cool and then refrigerate for cold punch.

Hi Laura, oh I'd definitely go for that punch, maybe with a splash of Cointreau ;) Been really busy at my end of the world, school holidays + hubs away travelling for nearly 3 weeks, which explains why I haven't been commenting much (still reading though)! Love the photo of the jug - so shiny.

So pretty! That would be great for fall entertaining, either for grown-ups or kiddos. Warmed with a stick of cinnamon would be scrumptious too!
