2 Cups of apple juice
2 Cups of Cranberry Juice
1 Cup of pineapple juice
2 T of brown sugar
1/2 t of cloves
1/2 t of allspice
1/2 t of cinnamon
2 cinnamon sticks
1 round coffee filter
1 twist tie
Lay a coffee filter onto a flat surface. In the center of the filter, add brown sugar, cloves, and allspice. Pull the filter up and around the spices, creating a spice bag. Secure with the twist tie. In a large pot, place cinnamon sticks, and add juices. Next, add the spice bag.
Over high heat, bring drink to a boil. Lower heat to simmer, place a lid on the pot, and allow to simmer for about 20 minutes or longer.
**This drink tastes even better if the spices can sit in the juice over night.
Serve hot. Add a cinnamon stick for a garnish, if you wish!
Yields about 4 cups.
