Chef Fred's Ponche (Hot Punch)


Guava is a tasty tropical treat that is rich in Vitamin C, for strong bones and teeth, and Vitamin A, for eye health.  It slows down the absorption of sugar in the blood, which helps weight loss and when juiced it helps soothe upset stomachs.

2 golden delicious apples

¾ cup raisins

½ cup prunes

2-3 crab apples

2-3 nectarines or tangerines

2 cups diced pineapple

1 cup sugar

8 cups water


cinnamon sticks, anise stars or fruit rind to garnish

  2. Add all ingredients, except tequila, to a large pot and bring to a boil. 
  3. Lower heat and simmer for 1 hour.
  4. Add garnish and serve hot with a shot of tequila.
