Yuletide Punch

My mom started making this punch for Christmas when I was a teenager, and ever since then, it’s just not Christmas for me unless we have Yuletide Punch. I even think it tastes like Christmas! It has several different juices and ginger ale in it.

But I think cooking it with the cinnamon sticks and cloves is what gives it that “Christmas-y” taste.

I should probably tell you that this recipe, as it is shown below, is actually DOUBLE the original recipe.  I’ll admit that I’m the one who doubled it, and that’s because when I make it, I want to have A LOT of it!  Having said that, it’s very easy to halve the recipe. . . just use half of all the ingredients listed.

The original recipe says that this also makes a delicious slush drink, although I have never tried it that way.  It says to freeze all of the ingredients except the ginger ale.  When ready to serve it, break up the frozen punch, making it slush.  Then add the ginger ale to the slush.

  1. MMM that looks good. I so enjoy my sister talking to me about all the good recipes you have. She goes to her daughter’s blog in Sweden, then she goes to my blog from there, and then goes to yours. A round about way but she gets there. Baked Reuben Casserole is the one she wants to try first.

  2. Oh, that’s interesting about your sister and the blogs, Jan. Sweden sure is a long way from here. I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas!

  3. Laura, I had to copy the recipe so I can make it for Christmas Eve! It is sooo good! I am craving it right now.
    Thank you!

  4. Hey, Michelle, I’m glad you enjoyed it. I really do think it tastes like Christmas. It was great to see you at the party the other night. Merry Christmas!

  5. I make something very similar, but serve it hot in a crock pot. Very popular around the holidays! I also add some cinnamon heart candies into it, and sliced oranges to float in the crock pot. I’m sure this could be made the same way!
    Warm and wonderful!

  6. Debbie, that sounds very pretty. Thanks for sharing!!!
