Amoretti Recipe: Ponche Navideño

If you grew up far from the delicious influences of Mexico, allow us to introduce you to one of our favorite holiday traditions: Ponche Navideño! Served around Christmastime (a pre-midnight Mass warm-up perhaps?), this holiday punch is sweetly spiced and loaded with unique flavors. We've swapped a few ingredients to make this cozy drink a little more accessible, like a splash of our Tamarind Extract so you don't have to hunt down tamarind pods and can spend more time toasting your visiting family! Makes about 2 quarts.
