Author Notes

This is a bit of a traditional holiday punch with an actual punch. I like to taste the actual liquor in my punch, don’t you? This recipe was shared by a dear friend, and I modified it to suit my boozy tastes. My photo is an ode to her. —eatboutique

I made a non-alcholic (sadly) variant of this last week for a party of 18 year olds. I think the rum would be a great addition because I found the non-alcoholic version a bit lacking....

Yes, it's good but a bit humdrum without a little punch. But it's delicious with rum & sparkling wine added in. Sometimes I add a little vanilla extract too. Mmm.
