Harvest Sangria Punch

Renée G.


I prefer this neither cold over ice or served warm; rather just at room temperature. I have a 1/2 Gal. drink dispenser and will just make up a batch and let it sit on the kitchen counter until we need to refill it again.

Options: Place a few orange peels, cinnamon sticks, star anise and whole cloves and/or allspice in the pitcher, jar or whatever you have it stored in.

Careful if using whole cloves and allspice, however. They can become lodged in the pour spout of your dispenser and be a real bear to remove. Best to tie them up in cheesecloth. Don't ask me how I know this.
