Holiday Treats Day 13: Yuletide Punch
4 bags of Cranberry Tea (or 4 TBS of loose tea)
1 litter of Ginger ale
12 Stars of Anise
2 Oranges, sliced (blood oranges work better)
4 Cups Boiling water
1 Cinnamon Stick
Add tea to boiling water. Make sure to use an infuser if using loose tea. Let sit over night in fridge. Remove tea bags. take 1/2 litter of ginger ale, place in a sauce pot and add stars and cinnamon. Stir on a low heat for 20 min. Remove from stove and let cool. Combine remaining ingredients just before service.
Tip: Now this recipe might seem anoying to some people with all the starting and stops, but it is designed to make a filler recipe. something that you can do while making or baking other things. I love Blood oranges the best for this, but they are really hard to come by in Alaska.
