Citrus Cinnamon Mocktail

The holiday season is quickly approaching, and so is the demand for some fun, seasonal, mixed drinks! Adding cinnamon to this citrus punch helps give it more of a holiday vibe. I like to enjoy this as a mocktail, but you can add your favorite spirit to turn this into a spiked punch.
