MeMaw's Hot Spiced Punch

1-46 oz. container of 100% Cranberry Juice

1-46 oz. can of pineapple juice

8 “Constant Comment” tea bags (other orange or apple spiced teas will also work; using all decaf tea bags makes this recipe decaffeinated)

6-8 cinnamon sticks

6-10 cloves

½ pkt. Crystal Light powdered lemonade drink mix

½ cup to 1 cup brown sugar (opt.)


Percolator method: Pour both juices into the bottom of the percolator. Place other three ingredients into top of percolator basket. Plug in and allow to perk through full cycle. Serve. (Best if percolator has never made coffee, as these continue to have a slight coffee scent/flavor even after washed.)


Stove top: Remove tags from tea bags. Combine all ingredients into a large soup pot. Cover and allow to simmer on low for 30 minutes before serving.


Note: You can experiment with your favorite tea bags and flavored cranberry juices. Using cranberry cocktail blends will result in a sweeter punch. Adjust sugar accordingly.
