Ponche Navideno - Hot Mexican Punch
Now that you've made those yummy Cookie Nachos, you're going to need a drink to wash them down. There are seemingly countless versions of this popular and delicious hot spicy punch which looks like fruit salad soup when you're making it. In fact, it smells even more wonderful than it looks, and you'll be tempted to taste a spoonful during cooking. Typically tejocotes, a crab apple like fruit, and piloncillo, dark brown sugar shaped into cones, and fresh sugar cane are used in this drink. But since those are often difficult to find here in the U.S. unless you live near a Hispanic food market, you can substitute those ingredients for others like I have done here.
Time to Make: 1 hour
Makes 8 Servings
- 1 Orange, whole
- 1 Tangerine, whole
- 2 Apples
- 1/2 cup Prunes
- 1/4 cup Dried Apricots
- 1/4 cup Raisins
- 2 tablespoons coarse chopped Pecans
- 1/4 cup Whole Cloves
- 1/2 cup Raw Sugar
- 1/4 cup Brown Sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground Cinnamon or 1 Cinnamon stick
- Pinch of fresh ground Black Pepper
- 1/2 cup Brandy (optional)
- 1 Orange sliced for garnish
1. Bring 2 quarts of water to a boil in a 3 quart pot.
2. Prepare the fruit while the water is heating. Cut the dry fruits in half. Wash all fresh fruit well. For the pear, remove stems, core and cut into chunks. Do the same, after peeling, with the apples. Leave the tangerine and orange whole and stud the later with the whole cloves.
4. After the timer rings, add the cinnamon and ground pepper and cook 30 minutes more. 5 minutes before the end of boiling add the sugars.
