very good. I didn't have cranberry juice so I used 1 1/2 c. fresh cranberries, boiled them with everything else. When it was done I used an hand mixer to break it up added fresh squeezed OJ and strained it. I think the absence of the juice made it less sweet. I like this with our Thanksgiving meal for the "tea toaters"
- 2 1⁄2 quarts water
- 1 (32 ounce) bottle cranberry juice cocktail
- 1⁄4 cup lemon juice
- 2 cups sugar
- 4 cinnamon sticks
- 1 tablespoon whole cloves
- 3 family-size tea bags
