50Baking Cinnamon Imperials**(about ¾ of a bottle; found with the baking supplies)
OPTIONAL: Lemon-Infused Vodka
Combine the juice and cinnamon imperials. Stir until the imperials have fully dissolved.

*I used Knudsen brand all natural juices finding them to the have the most authentic flavor with no added unnatural ingredients.+*Tip*: to extract more juice from citrus fruit, put them in the microwave at high for 10 seconds before juicing them.**Red Hots candy could also be substituted though they may be stronger in heat. I would suggest starting at about half the quantity, stirring until dissolved then adding more if desired. My kids also suggested Atomic Bombs or Fireballs but I fear that would blow the roof off the heat!Note: to speed up punch readiness, have juices chilled before combining with the rest of the ingredients
