December 27, 2009
I called down to the Oualie Beach Bar as I always do every Christmas, and was complaining about the cold and snow in Ohio. Quick as a wink, my favortite bartender Moy, sent me a recipe to cheer me up, or at least warm me up. Now all I need is some string band music, and a hammock.
Hot Rum Punch Recipe
2 Tablespoons whole cloves
3 Medium blood oranges
½ Gallon apple cider
2 cinnamon sticks
2 Cups Cavalier Gold Rum
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Press cloves evenly into oranges. Place in a baking dish. Bake 45 minutes. In a large saucepan, heat cider and cinnamon sticks. Prick hot oranges with a fork. Place in a punch bowl and pour the hot cider over the oranges. Stir in rum. Serve hot with a garnish of orange peel or cinnamon stick.
Be careful not to get the mixture too hot, or all of the rum will evaporate…what’s the point then? :)
