Hot Spiced Cranberry Drink Recipe

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

  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 4 cups cranberry juice

"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."
