Very simply I'd like to offer guests mixed heated orange and grape juice in the winter. I'm not sure why this isn't more common since hot lemonade and hot cider exist.

Are there any nutritional cons to heating grape or orange juice?

  • I would add some grappa or other alcohol, and I promise your guests will love it :)

That's actually pretty a pretty common thing. Add a few cloves and a cinnamon stick and you'll have Mulled Orange Juice, or the same with grape juice. That recipe adds orange zest, lemon juice, cloves, nutmeg and a cinnamon stick. This one starts with grapes.

I can't speak to the nutritional effects of heating the juices, but mulled juices sound nice on a cold, winter day. There certainly isn't anything toxic to be nervous about.
