Serving Ideas ...

Want to make this fancy when you serve it? Have fresh lemon (or orange) slices available and put in each glass. Then add a stir stick - a stick of cinnamon to each glass as well.

This punch is only as good as the juice you use. Try to use fresh juice. Using cheap frozen or canned juices will turn out a normal tasting punch. But if you want something that will impress your taste buds and your guests, go for fresh!

Also, be considerate of your guests. If this is a formal affair and everyone's dressed fancy, stay away from the darkly colored juices. (Stains are never nice.) Use light-colored juices instead. Parents, especially will be grateful.

Since you are serving this non-alcoholic punch recipe hot, use glasses or glass mugs that have handles on them. That way, it's easier to drink and serve.
