Tastes like cranberry cider. Very good for warming up or it also tastes great chilled.

This is a very tasty drink. My grandson was home sick with a cold and I was looking for a warm drink to make for him. I made this for him and he loved it. I also enjoyed it. It's too good to save for special occasions. I'll be making it often during the winter. I added a bit of extra orange juice after cooking to cool it just a bit for him. It was good that way also.

I didn't have cloves so I omitted them. I kept this hot in a crock pot.
