    Every time I make this people love it. I always make a double batch because one batch doesn't last long. I also add four cups of hot brewed tea to each batch and I don't put as much sugar as it calls for.

    I just tried this recipe for the first time, on 50 guests no less! It was a hit! Obviously you have to serve warm/hot, and definitely put cranberries and orange slices in the punch bowl to brighten it up and make it more festive. I didn't even bother straining out the cloves or cinnamon sticks. Got LOTS of compliments and a guest asked for the recipe so they could serve it at their holiday party. This one's a keeper!
