Reviews forHot Cranberry Citrus Drink
"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!"
"I love this drink, especially on a cold day!"
