Hi, my name is Coryanne Ettiene, and today I'm going to show you how to make an easy red punch. Now, oftentimes when you're making punches, there's so many different varieties of juices available, and a lot of people are slightly worried about the refined sugar content. And, to get over that worry, what I like to opt for are pure juices. In this punch recipe, I'm using a grape juice, a black cherry juice, and a cranberry juice. Now, the grape juice is a very, very strong taste, so be very careful and mindful when you do pour it. That way, it doesn't overpower the rest of the flavors. You want to use one part of purple grape juice - I can almost smell the sweetness when I pour it in. And then, black cherry juice. I love black cherry juice - it gives a really nice tart that's in contrast with the cranberry juice that can sometimes be a little bit dry. So, you've added one part grape juice and one part cherry juice to the mix. And now, you want to take your very large bottle of cranberry juice and fill the rest of the pitcher. So, essentially, two parts cranberry juice. Smells like Christmas. Stir everything together, blend it nicely together. Now, if you're serving an over-21 crowd, I would really suggest - and it'd be between you and I - adding a little bit of a really dark red wine to it. It makes a really nice balance to the sweet and the tart of the fruit juice, and it gives that punch that kind of party attitude you might be looking for. Add a little bit of cinnamon. I always like to brush my cinnamon sticks before I put them in - really releases those essential oils. And then, a handful of dried cherries. Now, the beauty with using dried cherries is they really bloom and blossom in the water, and they'll expand and become larger. So, they really do accent your party punch. Stir those together - oh, it smells amazing. Now, I'm serving this over ice, but you can certainly simmer it over a stovetop and serve it warm during the winter months. My name is Coryanne Ettiene, and I hope your next party packs a punch.
