It is Lindsey once again. My mom asked me to blog about Hot Orange Punch, another Christmas tradition in our home. Every year around Christmas time my mom would make things like eggnog (without the alcohol, because, you know, we're Mormon), hot chocolate, and Hot Orange Punch. She says that she remembers her mom making it when she was a little girl, so it is a long standing tradition.
When I was in college I asked my mom for the recipe and I started making it. I'd make it when I was sick and started making it for my roommates to enjoy. Many of them stated that it is wassail, but I've had wassail, and Hot Orange Punch tastes better. The wassail I had was pretty watered down anyhow. Anyway, there is no apple juice in this.
Besides Hot Orange Punch being warm and delicious and full of Vitamin C, it is also REALLY easy to make. So, let me tell you how!
Enjoy! I am enjoying mine while watching the LDS church's First Presidency Christmas Devotional. If you are looking for more ways to have a Christ centered Christmas you can watch a broadcast of it at lds.org or mormon.org or find it on Youtube on the Mormon.org channel.
