Fruit Punch Recipe | A Spicy Peach Aperitif

    glass of fruit punch with peaches

    This tasty summer fruit punch combines sweet peach and orange juice with rich spices like cinnamon and cloves. The citric combination provides your daily dose of potassium and vitamin C, and the addition of the cloves adds an antioxidant component plus great flavor.

    During the summer, we like chilling this fruit punch and adding ice in for a cool and refreshing aperitif. For the winter, you can easily warm this up to make a cider-like beverage that’s ultra soothing and delicious.
