Bottom Shelf Mixology: Hot Punch in the Mouth

Welcome to Bottom Shelf Mixology!  We have racked our brains (and our livers) to come up with special "bottom shelf" versions of popular drinks, and some original creations that range from "oh, that might be interesting" to "that sounds absolutely disgusting".  

Hot Punch in the Mouth

  • 32 oz Cran-apple Juice Cocktail
  • 1 Tbsp Powdered Lemonade Drink Mix
  • 4 Cloves
  • 6 Hot Tamales Candies
  • 1/4 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 cup Franzia Chillable Red Wine

Combine everything but the wine in a large microwave safe bowl.  Cover it, and microwave it on High for two minutes.  Stir it, and put it back in on High for another two minutes.

Add in the wine, and, you guessed it, back on High for two more minutes.

As soon as the microwave stops, pull your bowl out, and serve this piping hot punch!

This drink is another wonderful addition to the holiday season, especially for those adults who have to sit at the kids table when you run out of seats at the adult table because your cousin Alex brought his new girlfriend Marlene and her two adult sons without informing the rest of the family first, and they get to sit at the adult table because they are guests.
