Believe it or not, on occasion I do like to drink something other than my daily cup of hot cocoa. This orange punch is one recipe I love to make. It is actually good hot or cold. I usually make one recipe and keep it in a pitcher in the fridge then heat some up on those chilly fall or winter afternoons.
Hot Orange Punch
2 cups of sugar
3 quarts of water (12 cups)
1 large can frozen orange juice
1/2 cup lemon juice
1 tsp. almond extract
Mix all ingredients together in a large saucepan. Heat until hot. Serve hot or cold.
Fold a pipe cleaner into thirds. Cut one loop so there are three open ends. Twist the tops together. Thread orange, red, yellow, and green tri-beads onto each strand. When full fold the bottom of the pipe cleaner so the beads don’t fall off. Tie a raffia bow around the top. Hot glue a magnet onto the back.
