My grandfather used to make a huge bowl of this punch every Christmas. The recipe has been in the family for generations and it is delicious! For best results, serve in a punch bowl with a block of ice. Refrigerate leftover (if there is any) in a covered pitcher.

I made this for a holiday party. It was a big hit. I made an ice ring before hand in my bundt pan and added orange slices (cut really thin with peel on) and berries. As the ring melted down the oranges and berries added a wonderful touch to the punch. Read More

Made for New Year's Day party. No rave reviews but was enjoyed by some. Wish I'd added the pineapple juice suggested by someone else. Just didn't taste like a party punch to me. Read More

This excellent recipe received rave notices from guests ranging from 26 years old to something over 60. It's delicious and easy to make. But be careful - it'll sneak up on you if you drink too much. Read More
