Holiday Rum Punch

Does the weather outside look frightful? Or maybe you are having the in-laws over and need something to take the edge off? Here is a rum punch recipe from that will help you enjoy (or tolerate) the holiday season!


  • 6 orange(s)
  • clove(s)
  • 1 bottle rum
  • 1/2 cup superfine sugar
  • 1/2 gallon sweet apple cider


Stud oranges with cloves and bake until they soften. Place them in a punch bowl and add rum and sugar. Set fire to the rum (Jamaican rum is recommended) and in a few minutes begin slowly adding cider, thus extinguishing the flames. Stir in cinnamon and nutmeg, and keep the mixture hot.
