    Quick tips about fall punch

    What I also love about this fall punch is that it can be served different ways! No matter which way you choose to serve this punch, remember to stir often in order to keep the flavors blended.

    1. Room temperature, over ice
    2. Chilled in the refrigerator ahead of time
    3. Warm, and served in a crock pot

    Serve your Thanksgiving punch with an adorable drink stirrer. Not only does it add a bit of pizzazz, but it encourages your guests to remember to stir it before each sip, enjoying all of the flavors of this punch.
