I serve this rosy spiced beverage at parties and family gatherings during the winter. Friends like the tangy twist it gets from Red-Hots. It's a nice change from the usual hot chocolate. —Laura Burgess, Ballwin, Missouri

"Served this at my work's Christmas potluck. I had requests for the recipe. I kept it on warm in the crockpot after it heated through. Will definitely make this again."
