Festive recipes: no-alcohol mulled wine (punch)

We love the occasional mulled wine in the evening almost as much as we love a mince pie when it comes to a festive recipe, so here’s a no-alcohol mulled wine that the kids can not only help to make, but can help to drink too.

What Yule Need

  • 750ml red grape juice
  • 750ml pomegranate juice
  • 500ml cranberry juice
  • 2 large oranges, 1 sliced into half-moons, pips removed, 1 zest pared into strips to garnish
  • 5 cloves
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 3cm piece fresh ginger, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 2 red apples, halved, cored and sliced (optional)
  • Runny honey to taste


  1. Pour all 3 of the fruit juices into a large pan along with the orange slices, cloves, cinnamon, and ginger.
  2. Stir and over a low-medium heat until hot (but not boiling – if it boils then you’ve gone a tad too far!).
  3. Pop in the red apple slices and the honey. Brownie points for sourcing local honey from a local small business!
  4. Stir until the honey has dissolved, then taste and add more of the sweet stuff if needed.
  5. Serve the mulled wine (or punch really) in thick glass tumblers for the grown ups, and plastic cups for the little ones. Add a twisted strand of orange zest in each one to make it look like the real deal.

That’s it! Easy, delicious and guaranteed to be a hit all through Christmas and beyond. Don’t forget to head over to the Treehouse Club blog for more Christmas recipes and Christmas craft ideas!
