This is a nice warm-up punch. I like to serve it when there is a nip in the air. The aroma of the apple cider, orange juice and spices is wonderful as the punch simmers in the slow cooker. —Susan Smith, Forest, Virginia
I serve this rosy spiced beverage at parties and family gatherings during the winter. Friends like the tangy twist it gets from Red-Hots. It's a nice change from the usual hot chocolate. —Laura Burgess, Ballwin, Missouri
This drink is a super change of pace from iced tea or punch. My aunt gave me this recipe when our children were little. Now they're all adults, but we still enjoy this pretty beverage when we get together.—Doreen Patterson, Qualicum Beach, British Columbia
As a table brightener, fix a bowl of festive fruity punch—it's a refreshing beverage you can mix together in moments. To dress it up even more, I add an ice ring filled with oranges, lemons and cranberries. —Karen Ann Bland, Gove, Kansas
The sunny color of this refreshing punch matched the bright yellow sunflower decorations for my theme dinner. It's easy to stir up, too, which is good new because a few sips may quench your thirst, but your taste buds are sure to be asking for more.
