- Get the pineapple from Chestnut Hill Farms ready. Slice off the top and bottom, then take the skin off. Then remove the core by slicing it into rounds. Cut the pineapple into tiny pieces, reserving some for the garnish.
- The apple cider, orange juice, cranberry juice, and honey should all be combined in a big pot. After giving the mixture a good stir to fully dissolve the honey, reduce the heat to medium and gently simmer.
- To the pot, add the sliced lemon and orange, cloves, nutmeg, ginger, cinnamon sticks, and allspice. Warmth and complexity of taste will be added to the punch by these fragrant spices.
- Stir in the pineapple chunks gently so they can soak up the flavorful, rich juice. Allow the aromas to combine and the pineapple to soften a little by simmering the mixture for 15 to 20 minutes.
- Your kitchen will fill with a warm, inviting aroma as the Mulled Pineapple Punch simmers, which will definitely get you in the mood for the holidays! You can give each serving a shot of black rum or brandy for an adult twist, but it tastes just as good without it.
- For a festive touch, top your warm mug or glass of Mulled Pineapple Punch with a slice of orange or lemon, a chunk of pineapple, and an extra cinnamon stick.
