Many years ago we discovered this recipe for India Inspired Punch. As fall weather is a time to think about warming up it’s a natural fit with the combination of cinnamon and clove. You could easily serve this warm on a cold day.
This drink is inspired by the flavors of chai tea. You change out plain water for spiced water in this recipe and are left with a delicious flavorful beverage. I hope you enjoy this.
For an adult version add vodka to taste.
