Ponche Navideño is traditionally made with a small golden-coloured fruit called tejocote which taste similar to crab apples but different in texture. If you are lucky enough to find this fruit (rare outside Mexico) omit the whole plums and add whole tejocotes instead.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
5 litres water
1/2 cup rosella fruit, (optional), see note
8 pieces sugar cane, (optional)
2 cinnamon sticks, whole
200g guava paste, (or quince paste)
4 small apples, cubed
6 guavas, cubed, (or pears)
6 plums, left whole
5 prunes, stoned
1/2 cup raisins
1/4 cup dried apricots
1kg brown sugar
500ml brandy, rum or red wine

Method

  1. In a large saucepan, boil the water with the rosella fruit, sugar cane, cinnamon and the other fruits.
  2. Bring to the boil, and simmer for 10–15 minutes.
  3. Add the sugar and brandy just before you are ready to serve.
  4. Serve very hot in mugs. This drink is perfect for cold winter days!

Note:

  • You can find rosella fruit at some speciality or health food stores.
