Citrus-Cinnamon Punch

  • TOTAL TIME: 25 MIN plus chilling
  • SERVINGS: makes about 2 quarts

Cinnamon flavors lots of holiday drinks, from eggnog to mulled wine. Here it appears in a juicy punch that's delicious spiked with Grand Marnier or Cognac.


  1. 2 1/ 4 cups fresh orange juice
  2. Strips of zest from 2 navel oranges
  3. Three 3-inch-long cinnamon sticks, broken into pieces


  1. 3 cups fresh orange juice
  2. 2 cups fresh red grapefruit juice
  3. 1 tablespoon grenadine syrup
  4. 2 1/2 cups cold grapefruit soda (20 ounces)
  5. Orange slices and ground cinnamon, for garnish
  1. MAKE THE PUNCH In a saucepan, boil the orange juice, zest and cinnamon sticks over moderately high heat until reduced to 1 cup, 8 minutes. Strain and let cool.
  2. In a large glass pitcher, combine the orange reduction with the orange and grapefruit juices and the grenadine. Stir well and refrigerate until chilled, about 1 hour. Just before serving, pour in the grapefruit soda. Dust the orange slices with cinnamon and serve in the punch.
