Autumn Punch

Ingredients
2
teaspoons whole cloves
1/2
of a vanilla bean, split lengthwise
1
64 ounce bottle apple-cranberry juice
4
medium purple and/or green plums, pitted and sliced
1
750 milliliter bottle Gewurztraminer, or other fruity white wine*
 
Ice cubes

Directions

  1. Place cloves and vanilla bean in center of a double-thick 6-inch square of 100-percent-cotton cheesecloth. Bring corners of cloth together; tie closed with clean string. Pour apple-cranberry juice into a large container or pitcher. Add plums and spice bag. Cover and chill for 4 to 24 hours.
  2. Remove and discard cheesecloth bag. Stir in Gewurztraminer. Serve beverage and plum slices over ice. (Or omit the ice and heat the juice mixture and wine in a 4-quart Dutch oven until hot. Serve in heatproof mugs.) Makes 10 to 12 servings.
