Hot Golden Fall Punch

I found this recipe years ago, 30 to be exact, from the Junior League of Austin cookbook. I love to serve it in the fall when I host parties, especially as a pre-Thanksgiving sip before we sit down for our meal.

A fun, and unexpected, way to serve your punch is setting up this hot punch in a percolator on your front porch with a tray of fall mugs and cinnamon stick stirs.  When guests arrive they will smell the spices from their cars and instantly enter your home with mugs full of happiness. They will never forget your hospitality, for sure!

Hot Golden Fall Punch

4 cups of unsweetened pineapple juice

1 12 oz can of apricot nectar

4 cups of apple cider

1 cup of orange juice

2 cinnamon sticks

1/4 tsp salt

1 tsp whole cloves

Pour juices into electric percolator*.  Place remaining ingredients in basket and perk.  Serve steaming hot. Serves 18-20.

*Without a percolator, pour juices in a large pot.  Simmer 10 minutes and remove spices before serving.
