Every year we spend hours cooking delicious holiday meals for our families. Shouldn’t holiday drinks be an important part of our Thanksgiving recipe repertoire?
Hot Holiday Punch
32 oz cranberry juice
32 oz pineapple juice
1 cinnamon stick – roughly 3 ½ inches
1/3 cup red-hot type candy
Combine the ingredients and cook them in a crockpot set on low for 2 to 5 hours. Be sure to take out the cinnamon stick before serving.
1 16 oz can cranberry sauce
1 16 oz bag peach slices, unsweetened, partly thawed
¾ cup orange juice
6 oz vanilla yogurt
¼ tsp ground cinnamon
Put all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Sugar or sweetener can be added, depending on your taste.
1 can orange juice
1 can pineapple juice
1 2-Liter bottle lemon-lime soda or ginger ale
½ cup pineapple chunks
Put the two frozen juices in a pitcher. I like to use a potato masher to break it up and make it easier to dissolve. Add the soda or ginger ale and stir until the frozen juices are completely dissolved. Mash the pineapple chunks and add to the punch for body. If desired, unmashed chunks or cherries can be added.
1 can pumpkin puree
12 oz apple juice, frozen concentrate
2 ½ cups water
Nutmeg and cinnamon, to taste
Take the pumpkin puree out of the can and put in the freezer for an hour. Then put the pumpkin, frozen apple juice, nutmeg and cinnamon into a blender and blend until smooth. Then add the water a bit at a time and blend, until all the ingredients have been thoroughly mixed.
