Cranberry Citrus Amazing Cinnamon Christmas Punch

I shared this recipe here a few years ago, but it isn’t Christmastime until we’ve made our first batch! Growing up we called it Christmas Tea, but I think punch is a better term for it. Whatever you call it, it’s delicious and makes the whole house smell wonderful!

Cranberry Citrus Amazing Cinnamon Christmas Punch

8 oz. Whole Cranberries
3 qt. of water
1/2 cup of sugar
1 cup of cinnamon imperials
3 cinnamon sticks
24 whole cloves
3 cinnamon sticks
3 oranges – juiced
3 lemons – juiced

Boil the cranberries in 1 qt. of water for about 10 minutes.

Mix 2 quarts of water, sugar, cinnamon imperials, cloves, and cinnamon sticks in a large pot. Heat until the cinnamon imperials melt. Add the orange and lemon juice to the pot.

Pour the cranberry mixture into the pot using a strainer to keep any seeds and skins from getting in. Discard the cranberries.

Simmer on low for 2 hours.

You can store it in the refrigerator and reheat for about a week.
