Smooth out the morning rush with a boost of berries. It's tart, tangy and sweet, so there's no need to add any extra sugar to this delightfully balanced beverage. —Elisabeth Larsen, Pleasant Grove, Utah
We offer this fruity beverage to guests to add a festive touch to holiday gatherings. It pours up frothy, then separates into a dark pink base with a light foamy top. A slightly tart drink, it's wonderful with home-baked cookies.
"I love to start this soothing cider in the slow cooker on nights before my husband goes hunting," says Jennifer Naboka of North Plainfield, New Jersey. "Then he can fill his thermos and take it with him out into the cold. The cider has a terrific fruit flavor we both enjoy." —Jennifer Naboka, North Plainfield, New Jersey
Our country wedding, held on my parents' farm, was even more wonderful than my husband, Keith, and I had imagined. There were so many memorable touches, including fresh wildflowers and sunflowers, plus great food and beverages like this beautiful citrusy punch. My mom created this simple recipe. —rook Hickle, Enumclaw, Washington
My mother would brew a batch of this hot drink when any of us children were sick. One sip and we'd instantly feel better! Now I make it for my husband and daughter on dreary winter mornings or anytime they're feeling under the weather.
