Red Hot

I have a wonderful recipe to share with you all today! I've been meaning to write about it for years now because it's so good but for some reason I always forget to share. It's a delicious red hot punch and it's perfect to make this time of the year. I've grown up on this beverage and I've been especially fond of it these days because it doesn't have any caffeine.


64 oz of cranberry juice
1 can of frozen orange juice
1 can of frozen lemonade
2 small cans of pineapple juice
12 oz of candy red hots

Simply mix together on the stove until the red hots melt and it's at your desired temperature. It's that simple! When I'm pouring it into my coffee mug I add about 1/4 of water to the cup because it's too strong and needs to be diluted down a little bit with water. You could go on ahead and add the water to the pot you mix the hot punch in if you like. Sometimes I use the empty cranberry juice bottle and fill it about 3/4 full of water then add it into the mix. (Hint: I also save my cranberry juice bottle and refill it with my hot punch leftovers)

I love having this drink for breakfast because I enjoy sipping on something hot in the morning. Today I had it as a snack paired with Fresh Markets Snowball Meltaway Cookies. OMG those cookies are amaze. I've never had them before and when I opened the bag it smelled like wedding cake.

This hot punch would be great to serve at a party and you could make it look really pretty by adding cranberries, orange or lemon slices to it. Like I said I've been enjoying this beverage even more now that I'm pregnant since it doesn't have caffeine. Give it a try, you'll love it!
