Stuffed Monster Heads
Hot Pineapple Orange Toddies
This is an aromatic and luscious drink to savor on a cold fall evening. It has a unique flavor that will be sure to please the children and adults at your next party. For best results, try to peel the orange in one big piece, or else pieces large enough so that they won't end up in individual mugs. If you love pineapple as much as I do, this toddy is also incredible with all pineapple juice. I also like adding a tablespoon of warmed apricot brandy to each mug before pouring in the pineapple mixture for a great adult drink.
6 cups unsweetened pineapple juice
3 cups freshly squeezed orange juice
1/4 cup brown sugar
Peel from 2 oranges
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
1 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons brown sugar
Additional cinnamon and nutmeg
Mix together the pineapple juice and orange juice in a large soup kettle. Bring to a boil and add the 1/4 cup brown sugar, orange peel, and spices. Simmer for five minutes. Whip the heavy cream with the honey and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Ladle the punch into warmed mugs and top with the whipped cream mixture. Lightly sprinkle the whipped cream with additional cinnamon and nutmeg. Serve immediately.
