I think this is a recipe my mom brought home from work when I was in junior high. It is a festive alternative to coffee or tea at holiday parties. We like it with breakfast as well as after dinner. Really, we welcome it on any cold day, any time of the day, leading up to Christmas. 


2 qts. unsweetened apple juice

2 C. pineapple juice

¾ C. lemon juice

½ C. sugar

2 cinnamon sticks

1 tsp. whole cloves

Bring all ingredients to a boil in large pot, then simmer on low. Serve hot.

Since I am buying and cooking in bulk, I measured the ingredients for a second batch and tucked it in the fridge for another cold day.
