    My 4th grader had to do a presentation about Christmas in Germany, so I made this punch and took it in for her to share with her class. Even though we had to serve it cold, it was a big hit! Several of the other children asked for the recipe. They especially liked the lemon pieces floating on top because it reminded them of lemonade.  -  23 Dec 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Would have given 4 stars as this is a very basic version of mulled cider, but this gets 5 stars instead due to having ingredients found in my kitchen as opposed to more specialized or complicated mulling mixes. Very easy to assemble and great taste.  -  27 Sep 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Extremely easy and the kids all loved this as a special Christmas drink. Definitely will make this our special Christmas day drink tradition!  -  21 Jan 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
