Hot Cranberry Cider
" This smells so good when its percolating. Once you've use your coffeepot to make it, however, it always has the smell of cloves and cinnamon sticks in it! We recommend you dedicate a cheap percolator to this recipe."
- 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 3 cinnamon sticks, plus additional sticks to use as stirrers
- 1 Tbsp whole cloves
- 6 cups cranberry juice cocktail
- 2 quarts apple juice
Put the sugar, cinnamon sticks, and cloves in the basket of a large coffee percolator. Put the juices in the bottom of the percolator. Bring to a boil over medium heat. let the mixture perk as if making coffee. Serve with cinnamon stick stirrers, if desired.
Makes 3 1/2 quarts, about 18 servings
