Hot Spiced Orangle Blossom Punch Recipe

 Hot Spiced Orange Blossom Punch with Gallo Family Wines Moscato
If you’re a fan of mulled wine, this spiced punch will certainly be up your street! Made with Gallo Family Vineyards Moscato*, it’s fruity, floral and affordable.  It’s really simple to make and is perfect for a grownup girly night in. In short, it’s the perfect partner for homemade pizzas and a Ryan Gosling movie.

Before making the punch, I tried a glass (just to make sure, of course).  The wine is just as lovely on it’s own with hints of peach and pineapple.  I can see it being a staple drink in the summer when barbecue season is upon us.  I think the citrus flavours will compliment a burger or two really nicely.  For now, I’ll be enjoying it in the spiced orange blossom punch as it’s a warming yet refreshing alternative to mulled wine for the last of the colder months.

Hot Spiced Orange Blossom Punch
2 bottles of Gallo Family Vineyards Moscato*
Half a lemon, half an orange & 4 kumquats
1 tablespoon of honey
2 tablespoons of orange blossom water
80g sugar
6 whole allspice (I couldn’t find any so used ground allspice)
2 cinnamon sticks
Twist of orange zest and physalis
Thinly slice the lemon, orange and kumquats, discarding any seeds. Quarter the orange slices.

Put the fruit into a pan and add honey, sugar, orange blossom and allspice.
With a knife, cut the cinnamon sticks lengthwise into thinner strips & add to the pan.
Add two cups of water to the pan, bring to boil over high heat then reduce heat and simmer gently for 5 minutes.
Pour both bottles of Gallo Family Vineyards Moscato into the hot citrus base and heat until steaming for about 8 minutes.
Pour into martini glasses with a twist of orange zest and a physalis for garnish.

Let me know how you get on if you make this!
