This punch definitely packs a punch and kids will love it at the school holiday parties. It has the right amount of cinnamon that is slightly diluted by the sweetness of sugar and fruit flavors. Definitely not too hot for the kids who aren’t fans of spicy things! This punch is also a good one for serving at your holiday dinner with the family. I for one like to make a special dinner for my family on Valentine’s Day and have been known to make heart shaped pizza. The Red Hots punch would pair quite nicely with that meal!
