Serve this rosy spiced beverage at parties and family gatherings during the winter. Everyone likes the tangy twist it gets from red-hots.
INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):
- 8 cups hot water
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 4 cups cranberry juice
- 3/4 cup orange juice
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- 12 whole cloves (optional)
- 1/2 cup red-hot candies
In a 5-qt. slow cooker, combine water, sugar and juices; stir until sugar is dissolved.
If desired, place cloves in a double thickness of cheesecloth; bring up corners of cloth and tie with string to form a bag. Add spice bag and red-hots to slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 2-3 hours or until heated though. Before serving, discard spice bag and stir punch.
