Test Kitchen Notes

Made with warm spices and Patrón Añejo, this take on Ponche Navideño—a classic Mexican Christmas punch—from food blogger and photographer Ericka Sanchez was made to sip and share throughout the holiday season. Bonus: It’s totally batch-able. When it’s time to serve, ladle the drink (fruit included!) right into your favorite mug and add the tequila.
