We are winding down #cranberryweek and it has been a blast! I have been enjoying all of my favorite food bloggers friends recipes! Today, I am sharing one of my favorite Holiday punches, Warm Spiced Cranberry Punch! You are all going to not only love this easy punch! My friends, you are going to love how the aroma from the citrus and spice while it simmers! Full of warm Holiday flavors from the cranberry, cinnamon and spices! The exact feeling I want everyone to have when they taste this punch!
When it comes to the Holidays, I love everything about them. Family, food, friends, food, laughing, food and of course there are always cocktails and drinks. I love to have tasty and fun non-alcohol drinks for those who don’t imbibe and for anyone who wants just a great tasty drink! This Warm Spiced Cranberry Punch delivers it all! Seriously, the aroma in the house when this is simmering, if I could bottle it! Wow, I would be a wealthy woman!
Tips on Making Warm Spiced Cranberry Punch:
- Can prepare using slow-cooker or a large Dutch Oven on the stove.
- If using the stove, keep on a low simmer and have a large ladle in the pot so guests can pour their own punch.
- For the slow cooker, I keep the cooker out of small children’s reach. I keep a ladle in front of the slow-cooker. (easiest way)
- Feel free to double or triple recipe. Can be made ahead. Keeps in fridge for about 4-5 days.
This winds up a great week for me! I had a blast creating a new recipe, Apple Cranberry Crisp and sharing two family favorites, Slow Cooker Cranberry Pot Roast and Easy Cranberry Orange Muffins!

A tasty blend of cranberry, citrus and spice make the most amazing punch. Served warm as a festive punch. Perfect for Thanksgiving, Christmas and the Holiday season. Make either in slow cooker or stovetop.
- 2 cups cranberry juice
- 1 cup apple cider
- 1 cup pineapple juice
- 1 cup orange juice
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- 1 teaspoon whole cloves

- 1 star anise
- 1/2 teaspoon fresh nutmeg *see note

Slow Cooker Instructions
Add to a slow cooker, cranberry juice, apple cider,pineapple juice, orange juice and cinnamon sticks.
In either a cheesecloth or tea infuser add the whole cloves, whole allspice and star anise. Tie up the cheesecloth or close the infuser and add to the slow cooker. Grind the fresh nutmeg into the slow cooker.
Add the orange slices into the slow cooker. Place top on cooker and cook on low for at least 3-4 hours to blend the flavors. Serve warm with the garnishes. Refrigerate any leftovers. Can keep covered for about 5 days.
Add all the ingredients from step 1 and 2 into a medium to large pot. Size of pot depends if doubling the recipe. Then add the orange slices. Simmer for at least 30 minutes to blend the flavors.
Serve warm with the garnishes. Can transfer to a slow cooker on warm for long term serving.
- I prefer the fresh flavor of fresh nutmeg but ground nutmeg can be used.
- If serving for party, slow cooker is easiest way to cook and keep the punch warm.
- I like to set the garnishments in festive bowls next to the slow cooker with mugs for everyone to enjoy.
- Can be made ahead of time and warmed when ready to serve.
