Spiced Orange Breakfast Punch

Yields about 11 cups

2 orange spice tea bags
1 cup (240 ml) boiling water
5 cups (1200ml) Homestyle orange juice with pulp
1 1/2 cups (350 ml) non-alcoholic ginger beer
1 cup (240ml) ginger ale
3 cups (720ml) lemon lime soda
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
3 cinnamon sticks (for garnish)
Fresh pink grapefruit slices (for garnish)
 
Place the tea bags in a 16 oz. mug and pour the boiling water over to steep. Set aside to cool completely.
Chill juice, ginger beer, ginger ale and soda before mixing.
In a large punch bowl or pitcher, combine orange juice, ginger beer, ginger ale and lemon lime soda. Remove tea bags from water and pour spiced tea into juice mixture; stir gently with a large spoon. Float grapefruit slices and cinnamon sticks on surface of punch. Sprinkle ground cinnamon and nutmeg on top, and serve.

Even though the punch loses some of its fizz, I think it's even better the next day!
