Cranberry Tea

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by LonghornMama

The name is a bit misleading...there's no tea here... but this hot drink is a nice change of pace especially around the holidays. I always buy extra cranberries when available and throw them in the freezer.

This was good. You obviously have to like cranberries to like this. I think this recipe is very much based on personal preference of taste. I used frozen cranberries & white sugar and left in the cinnamon sticks which imparted more flavor. Made for I Recommend Tag Game - February 2010!
