This make-ahead punch is great to serve to a large crowd. If rum doesn't float your boat, you can replace it with vodka, instead.


Makes 10 cups

Recipe from

Coastal Living


1 1/2 cups sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Pinch of ground allspice
3 Earl Grey tea bags
1 (750-milliliter) bottle spiced rum
1 cup sweet red vermouth
1 cup pomegranate juice
1 1/2 cups fresh orange juice
1 cup fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon orange bitters
2 Mandarin oranges, sliced
1 lemon, sliced
1 starfruit, sliced


1. Bring 3 cups water and first 3 ingredients to a boil in a medium saucepan, stirring until sugar dissolves. Remove pan from heat, and add tea bags. Steep 10 minutes; remove tea bags, and let cool.

2. Combine tea mixture, rum, and next 5 ingredients in a large container. Chill 1 hour or until ready to serve. Stir in Mandarin orange, lemon, and starfruit slices just before serving.
