Hot Apple Cranberry Drink

 

2 quarts apple juice

6 c cranberry juice

1/4 c brown sugar

1/2 T whole cloves

2 cinnamon sticks

pinch of salt

Mix in a crock pot/slow cooker and heat

Makes 18-20 cups (depends on the size of the cup 😉 )

Make sure to contain the cloves (in a cheesecloth or similar)

Added note from my uncle 🙂 — my grandpa used to make this but add Everclear to it to warm up on those cold winter nights! 😉  He called it “glug” — an old Swedish drink.
