Mexican Christmas Punch (Ponche Navideño) is a warm, deliciously fruity, naturally sweetened punch perfect for cold weather and especially the holidays!
In a large stock pot, bring water, cinnamon, sugar cane, tamarind, and hibiscus flowers to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until the water turns dark brown, about 10 minutes (depending on your cinnamon sticks, the Ponche may be a pinkish color).
Add oranges, apples, guava, and tejocotes and continue simmering 1 1/2 hours longer. Strain. Add sugar to taste (Ilike 1 cup.) Garnish with fresh fruit and serve. (Spike with tequila if you want to!)
