Top Review by HokiesMom

Refreshing is what this should be called. Loved the perkiness of the lemon and orange flavors and how the addition of the cinnamon, clove and honey tamed it so there it was smooth to drink. I made the mixture this morning, strained it and now hubby and I are enjoying our glasses after dinner on the deck. Great beverage to have on hand in the fridge. Congrats on your Food Trivia win.
