Who doesn’t love a hot beverage this time of year to beat the winter chill? This mixture of nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice and cloves spice up cranberry and pineapple juice to comfort you this time of year. My sister, Natalie, makes this punch every year during the wintertime holidays, so I thought I would share it among friends. It is very similar to a recipe I developed when I was a Food Editor with Southern Living magazine. It’s perfect to serve Christmas morning to set off the festivities in a warm cheerful tone. Cheers!

    Thanks for showcasing my recipe. It is so fabulous. My family expects for me to make it every holiday. When they wake up to it brewing it in the kitchen, they know the holidays are right around the corner. Enjoy.
