This lovely rosy drink, with its appealing fresh fruit flavor, is not too sweet or too tart. I sometimes serve this hot beverage at Christmas or at brunch gatherings as an alternative to coffee, tea or cold juice. -Shari Donaldson, Cummings, Kansas

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 4, 2014

I don't usually review recipes, but felt I had to do something to balance the 1 star comment. This is my go-to holiday and cold-day party drink. It's not overly sweet like cider can be, and I like it because it's different (and a pretty color). Do try!

This had no flavor...I had to add other juices and sugar. It's a lot of work and quite a disappointment.

This is a favorite of our family around the holidays. Warms you from the inside out with great flavor!
