Spicy Rum Punch

Becky Luigart-Stayner; Melanie J. Clarke
Yield 20 servings (serving size: about 3/4 cup)
You can steep the juice in advance; add the ginger beer and rum just before serving so the punch will be fizzy. Ginger beer, which actually contains no alcohol, tastes like a spicy ginger ale.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup chopped crystallized ginger
  • 2 tablespoons black peppercorns
  • 6 star anise
  • 4 (3-inch) cinnamon sticks
  • 2 (64-ounce) bottles cranberry-pineapple juice drink (such as Ocean Spray)
  • 2 cups dark rum
  • 4 (12-ounce) bottles ginger beer (such as Stewart's)
