Shaker Spiced Grape Juice

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Redneck Epicurean

This drink is a great alternative to hot apple cider. I've only had it once and got the recipe at Pleasant Union, one of the Shaker settlements here in Kentucky. The Shakers were wonderful cooks and most all of their recipes are deeelish.

I have to stand out in the cold every morning at work. I am not a coffee drinker so this was a nice alternative to the cocoa I usually drink. Thanks
