Mulled Wicked Wine Punch

Serving a punch while entertaining is always a fun treat. Guest really get into it which makes it a special guest at a soiree.

In the 17th century punch was created as a beer alternative for men working on ships. Once the peeps in Great Britain tasted punch, it became the adult beverage of choice and it made its way to America. Due to the love of punch, the punch bowl was created for celebrations and gatherings.

Long story short, punch is all about having a good time. I think one of the best ways to make a warm punch is in a Crock-Pot. It’s a great way  to simmer ingredients, makes the house smell all yummy, and keep the punch warm throughout a party.

If you want to make a punch to take on the go, then the Cook and Carry Crock-Pot is where it’s at. It’s easy to carry and heat the beverage backup. Just imagine when you arrive with your punch, you will be the DIY Diva of the night. A Crock-Pot is always a game changer.

The following Mulled Wicked Wine Punch is perfect for a Halloween party and the rest of Autumn. It’s also perfect for sipping during the December holiday season. Cheers!
