Drink Recipe: Spiced Rooibos Punch

Spiced Rooibos Punch

Yields 35 cups of punch

If you do not have fresh, juicy oranges and lemons, use frozen lemon juice (defrosted) and a not-from-concentrate orange juice in a carton. The Rooibos can be placed in a teaball (metal or plastic infuser) or use teabags so you do not have to strain it out after brewing.

1 teaspoon whole cloves
2 cinnamon whole sticks
6 quarts cold water
5 teaspoons Rooibos
juice of 6 oranges
juice of 3 lemons
2 cups pineapple juice
3 cups sugar or alternative sweetener, approximate

(needless to say, use organic ingredients)

Place the spices in a cheesecloth or tea-infusion bag, and the Rooibos into a separate bag if using loose. Add both to the water and bring to a boil. Let stand five minutes, then remove the two bags and discard. Stir in the three fruit juices, then the sugar or other sweetener, adjusting to taste. Can be served hot or chilled.
