Hot mulled cranberry punch

    30 min

    Mulled cranberry juice, like mulled wine, is a winter tradition in my home. This warm, comforting drink is easy to prepare and is great for Christmastime.

    1. Pour cranberry juice into a slow cooker; set on high. Add remaining ingredients to the juice. Heat, stirring occasionally, until hot and steamy, about 20 minutes.


    Don't have a slow cooker? Simply make this in a large stockpot over medium heat on the hob instead.

    Great for those not drinking at Christmas. Tastes very similar too!  -  30 Jan 2011


    Love this. Made half and used grape juice as I didn't have cranberry and used a third of the honey and a couple of star anise. Taste just like the real thing  -  09 Dec 2012


    Excellent mulled cider. I use 1/2 the amount of honey as we don't prefer it as sweet as the recipe calls for. I also added a bit of fresh orange juice. Yummy warmer-upper!  -  30 Nov 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
