      I tried this out on my family for the holidays. They all gave it a "thumbs way up" signal. I thought is was very delicious. The red wine, cranberry and subtle taste of brandy and cinnamon blended perfectly together. I made two batches. The first I made on the stove-top. The second, I kept warm in the crockpot. A lovely holiday drink.

      This was an easy to follow recipe and eveyone really liked this. I'd make it again. I made it on the stove top and kept it warm in a crock pot. Worked very well and was well received.

      This was one of the hot beverages that I made to keep us full of spirit during the holidays. A wonderful drink. The most predominant flavors were the red wine and cranberry juice which made a delicious combination. I did like Esther and kept this warm in the crockpot. Made it easier for my family to serve themselves.
