Ingredients

  • 850 ml | 2 cups Ocean spray Wholeberry cranberry 1 carton
  • juice 1 one large orange
  • 80 ml | 1/3 cup agave syrup – or to taste
  • peel of 1 orange
  • 1 orange sliced thinly
  • 1 lemon sliced thinly
  • 2 cm /1inch piece fresh ginger peeled and thinly sliced
  • 2 small cinnamon sticks
  • 2 star anise
  • 3 cloves
  • fresh cranberries and orange peel to garnish optional

Instructions

  • Add all the ingredients to a saucepan and bring to a very gentle simmer.
  • Stir for 5-7 minutes until hot. Turn off the heat and leave to cool slightly. Taste for sweetness - the juice is quite tart so you might need to add more agave syrup if you prefer your punch a little sweet.
  • Strain to a jug or leave the spices in, if you prefer, as the taste will intensify.
  • Serve warm, in mugs or glasses, garnished with cranberries threaded onto cocktail sticks and a strip of orange peel.

Notes

If you have any leftover punch, store in the fridge and heat in the microwave for 20-30 seconds before serving.
