Difficulty: 1 / 10
Servings: 8
Prep Time: 10
Cook Time: 15

  • 2 cups - Fresh or frozen Cranberries
  • 1 cup - Sugar
  • 1/2 cup - Orange juice
  • 1/4 cup - Lemon Juice
  • 7 whole - cloves
  • 1/4 cup - cinnamon candies
  • 6 cups - water - divided 2 cups and 4 cups

In a saucepan, cook cranberries in 2 cups water until they pop. Strain through a fine sieve, reserving juice and discarding skins; set aside. In a large saucepan, combine sugar, candies, cloves and remaining water. Cook until candies are dissolved. Add orange and lemon juices and reserved cranberry juice; heat though. Remove cloves. Serve hot.



Although this is non alcohlic, feel free to get 'cheerful' by adding Grand Marnier liquor, a splash of Peach flavored schnapps, or half a shot of cinnamon flavored schnapps, if you desire. Please drink AND SERVE responsibly.
