MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 21, 2011

I made punch similiar and it was delicious.

I used 6c. cider, 8c cranberry juice, 1/4 c. brown sugar, 3 cinnamon sticks & whole gloves. I just put on stove, as I was in a hurry - IT WAS WONDERFUL

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 5, 2011

I added the spices to the cider and simmered on the stovetop for a while instead of using a percolater. Then I mixed everything together (after straining out the spices) in the crock pot to keep hot.
