Big Game Punch

  • Yield: 1 gallon


  • 2 quarts cranberry juice
  • 1 pound clementines, not peeled, and cut into slices
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 quart lemon-lime soda (recommended: Sprite)
  • 1 liter spiced rum (recommended: Captain Morgan's Spiced Rum)


  • In a saucepan, bring the cranberry juice, clementines, cloves, and cinnamon sticks up to a boil. Remove the pan from the heat and set aside. This will infuse the tangerines and spices into the juice. Chill the infused juice completely.
  • In a punch bowl, whisk the chilled juice, soda, and rum together. Chill the punch completely before serving. Serve the punch in a pretty punch bowl and ladle into glasses filled with ice.
