Hot Cranberry Punch, an easy party punch recipe.

This Hot Cranberry Punch is the perfect drink choice for any winter day, especially during the holidays. With Christmas only two weeks away and holiday parties in full swing, this delicious, Hot Cranberry Punch can be made in an electric coffee pot (or slow cooker) so that you do not have to worry about it while mingling with all your friends and family.

Just leave it in the coffee pot or slow cooker, and your guests can help themselves whenever they want more. It’s so simple! And the best part, this punch is guilt-free because I used Sweet’N Low, which means you can enjoy one or two Eggnog Cut-Out Cookies, right!?

If you don’t have an electric coffee maker because you have a super fancy Keurig (I’m kinda jealous!), no worries you can use a slow cooker instead. The only difference is that you are going to place the  Sweet’N Low, brown sugar, cinnamon sticks and ground cloves right into the slow cooker. Cook the punch on high for 2-3 hours, stirring occasionally.

 Serve warm and top with fresh cranberries, a cinnamon stick, and a orange wedge. And the best part, you can just keep the punch in the coffee pot or slow cooker and let your guest serve themselves.

    Do you use 100% cranberry juice or a juice cocktail?  This looks delicious!!

      I use Cranberry Juice Cocktail but you can use 100% cranberry juice if you would like! Enjoy, it’s the best holiday drink! 🙂

    do you have to clean your coffee maker after brewing this? Seems like running sugared liquid through it would cause some sticky problems?

      I do clean my coffee maker after brewing this cranberry punch. 🙂
