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.

"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."
