This was the 2nd of two beverages I made for a park-wide gathering & it was a sloshing big-hit! I'm not much on alcohol, but I did enjoy putting this one together, especially with the fruit & nuts! I now have this recipe tucked away in my 'Yuletide or Whatever Holiday Cookbook'! Thanks for posting the recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my group mates in the Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #31]
