The color of pumpkins with the flavor of oranges, apples and cinnamon make this cozy beverage a hit! You just might want to double this recipe, then fill the punchbowl and keep more servings simmering for the aroma. —Mark Morgan, Waterford, Wisconsin

"We've served this at our church's big fundraiser each Christmas for the past four years and it's a huge hit! We make enough for 300 people and we rarely have leftovers."

"A refreshing twist to the winter apple cider. My husband and I both deided that we like the recipe very much. The orange juice takes a little of the bite away from the cider. Have made it three times since the recipe was published. Also haveshared this recipe with my famiy members. I use a tea ball for the whole all spice instead of the cheese cloth. This way I can wash it and reuse it. It is easily found with in the saucepan."
