Some Holiday Beverages

This recipe is from my sis Katie Jane and we ALWAYS have to make this during the holidays, if you are lacking in Christmas spirit, make up a batch when it is snowing and turn on some Christmas tunes and you will be there! (sometimes dancing around in the living room to the music helps too :)

20 C. Water
64 OZ Cranberry Juice
4 C Sugar
2 C. Orange Juice
8 Cinnamon Sticks
2 Tbsp Cloves
1 Tbsp Lemon Juice

Combine all ingredients EXCEPT OJ- simmer for 20 min then add OJ. Taste it before you remove the cloves and cinnamon sticks to make sure it is spiced to your liking. DON'T leave the cinnamon sticks in for too long or you will end up with liquid cinnamon bear juice. You can put your spices in a satchel if you want but I usually just fish out the sticks and cloves.


I got this one from another blog, but it looks so cute and it got good reviews and I love sparkling cider.

2 gallons of apple juice or apple cider
3 lbs of dry ice
