Orange-Rosemary Punch for #SundaySupper

It is the time of year for get togethers. People - friends, co-workers, acquaintances, families - get together to enjoy each other's company.  This week's #SundaySupper theme is Holiday Food & Appetizers.  This week's host is Conni aka  as The Foodie Army Wife.  

I am bringing something different than my usual Gluehwein.  Gluehwein - these days in red {rot} amd white {weiss} - as well as Punsch is a staple at German Christmas markets {Weihnachtsmarkt, Christkindlmarkt, etc.}.  It is warming, and comforting on a cold evening. 

Looking for a different kind of punch I came across the recipe for Orange-Rosemary Punch. It is different, but delicious - plus we have a nice rosemary bush in our garden.  Perfect, right?!  Let me tell you, this is an amazing drink. Plus it is super easy to make - just be sure not to boil it, or all the alcohol will get lost...unless that is what you want....

Orange-Rosemary Punch source

2 bottles of white wine {I used Trader Joe's - Sauvingon Blanc} 
1/2 C honey
1 untreated orange
4 springs of rosemary
2/3 C Orange Liquor {I used Harlequin brand}

1. Wash and zest the orange. Reserve the fruit
2. In a stock pot combine white wine, honey rosemary, orange liquor, and orange zest

3. Warm the mixture on the stove top {covered}.  It needs to get 
   hot but not brought to a boil.  Turn off the heat and let 
   steep for at least 30 minutes before serving
4. Cut the orange slices into bite size pieces.  Put a few pieces 
   into each mug, before filling it with the hot Orange-Rosemary

Wait, do not go yet - be sure to check out what everyone else from the #SundaySupper Team has to offer.
