It’s that time of the year again – we are already right in the middle of the advent season. And if you say advent and Christmas, you also have to say Punch.
But finding a Punch to buy that actually tastes good turns out to be quite hard. Most of them have this overly level of sweetness. Therefore I enjoy making my own Punch. Plus: Filled into nice bottles and decorated, it makes a lovely self-made Christmas gift or giveaway when invited to a Christmas dinner or a Christmas dinner.
This orange Punch works well as a shot in your cup of tea, giving it a little kick. Or just have it with some hot water in a cup. You can also enjoy it purely as a sweet liquid dessert after a lovely stuffy meal with your family or friends.
This Punch has an intense taste of oranges with a hint of Lemon accompanied by a soft breeze of cinnamon, vanilla, and cloves. And what else gives us that Christmas taste? Exactly: a little bit of rum ;-)!
2 kg of oranges
1 kg lemons
1 pkg vanilla sugar
2 cinnamon sticks
500ml rum 38% vol
Squeeze out the oranges and the lemons.
Add sugar, vanilla sugar, cinnamon sticks, and cloves to the fresh-pressed juice in a pot and bring it to a boil. Let it simmer for five minutes.
Put the pot aside, remove cinnamon sticks and cloves and let (the orange-lemon juice) it cool off.
Put the syrup through a sieve and add the rum. Now you can add some more sugar or rum according to your personal taste.
Pour your orange punch into clean bottles and close them airtight.
