A Red Christmas Party Punch

It’s Christmas day! Merry Christmas to all the readers of my blog, and thank you for all your support so far!

I’ve made quite a few other Christmas drinks before – Saint Clement’s Cocktail, Christmas Sangria BlancaStrawberry Lemonade Slushies etc. This Christmas punch is slightly different from the previous mixes, as it has a more spiced taste (not as strong as mulled wine), and is very sweet, which I like. It also is quite healthy, with a good mix of fruit slices which you can munch on once you finish the drink. The visual of the way this drink is served is very appealing (very red!) – definitely a good conversation starter at any parties or dinners.

Dear Santa, please let this week stay for as long as it can be. I would like Christmas to take a pause for longer this year, so that I can rest for a while more. Thank you Santa!


  • Orange: 2 + extra to slice thinly
  • Cloves: a handful
  • Red grape juice: 500ml
  • Apple juice: 500ml
  • Honey: 2 tbsp
  • Ground nutmeg: a pinch
  • Cinnamon: 1 stick
  • Apple: 1, sliced thinly
  • Rosemary sprigs: 3 – 4


  1. Stud oranges with cloves.
  2. Place oranges, red grape juice, apple juice, honey, ground nutmeg and cinnamon stick in a saucepan. Bring to a boil.
  3. Leave to simmer for 2min.
  4. Allow to stand for 5min. Strain (optional).
  5. Serve hot with apple slices, orange slices and rosemary sprigs.


  • I did not add the rosemary sprigs into the drinks as I didn’t want to buy a large pack of it just to use a few stalks, which would be a huge waste of ingredients.
