There is nothing like a delicious drink to warm you up in the wintertime! I especially enjoy this drink around the holidays but it tastes delicious all winter long! One of my favorite parts about this drink is that it makes your whole house (or apartment) smell delicious! This makes a lot but you can always refrigerate it and heat it up later. Enjoy!

Here are the ingredients: 2 1/2 cups sugar, 8 cinnamon sticks, 4 whole allspice, 24 whole cloves, 1 gallon of apple cider, 6 cups of orange juice, 4 cups lemonade, 3 quarts of water.

First you will fill a large pot with 3 quarts of water.

Add the sugar, cinnamon sticks, allspice, and cloves. Stir around until sugar is dissolved. Bring these ingredients to a boil and simmer for 2 hours.

As it simmers it should turn into a reddish color and look something like this!

While it is simmering you should mix up a container of lemonade and a container of orange juice. Just follow the directions that are on the container.

They look like this when you are done. (This picture probably isnt necessary but I took it anyway!)

After the ingredients in the pan have simmered for 2 hours you will strain the ingredients to get out all of the spices.

When you are done straining it return it to the original pan.

Add the apple cider, orange juice, and lemonade. Put it on low heat and stir occasionally until it is all warm.

YUM! It looks so good! I drink mugs and mugs of this stuff whenever we have it at my house! It tastes best when served warm. Enjoy!
