My 4th grader had to do a presentation about Christmas in Germany so I made this punch and took it in for her to share with her class. Even though we had to serve it cold it was a big hit! Several of the other children asked for the recipe. They especially liked the lemon pieces floating on top because it reminded them of lemonade. Read More

This is way too sweet for us but the flavor is good especially with the lemon slices. I'm not sure I'll try this again. But if I do I would use less or no additional sugar. Read More

Would have given 4 stars as this is a very basic version of mulled cider but this gets 5 stars instead due to having ingredients found in my kitchen as opposed to more specialized or complicated mulling mixes. Very easy to assemble and great taste. Read More

This was such a great treat today on a cold rainy dreary day. I used sucralose cut the servings to two. I didn't have stick cinnamon so I just sprinkled cloves & cinnamon on top. I wasn't sure about adding the water but I did & it was great! Thanks! Read More

I made this today for my office and used 1/2 apple juice 1/2 white grape. Very very syrupy sweet. I'm making it tomorrow with less sugar and I'm sure it will be much better. It was REALLY sweet and I can't stress this enough but it was still a hit so great recipe (kinda)!:) Read More
