The drink that will warm you right up!


  • 240ml (1 cup) water
  • 3 wintry teabags (I use cinnamon and baked apple teas)
  • 240ml (1 cup) fresh orange juice (from about 5 oranges)
  • 300ml (1 1/4 cups) ginger beer
  • 240ml (1 cup) dark rum
  • 120ml (1/2 cup) honey

For serving


  1. Bring water to a boil in a small pot. Remove from heat, add tea bags and let brew for 5 minutes. Discard the bags.
  2. Meanwhile, combine orange juice, ginger beer, rum and honey in a medium saucepan. Stir in hot tea.
  3. Bring punch to a boil over medium-high heat. Once it boils lower the heat to medium and let it simmer for about 5 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat and pour into heat-resistant glasses. Garnish with a demitasse sticks and orange twists.


If you want a lighter punch, let mixture boil for a a few extra minutes. If you want a punch that’s not as sweet, leave some of the honey out.

HOW TO – orange twists: The easiest way to get twists is with a citrus zester like this one, which I currently don’t have. So, I simply peeled my orange with a potato peeler, starting at the top and peeling all around to the bottom. I took off the entire peel in one go. This way you get a long, but wide peel. To get thinner strips, slice it with a knife.
