Very good and perfect for rainy/snowy days or just when you have a cold/sore throat. I wished I used a spice bag for the allspice and cloves but next time I will. Wonderful! Thanks for sharing!

This was fantastic, I halved the recipe and enjoyed this delicious drink. All I had was sparkling alcoholic cider and it fit well

Just the right balance of sweet, tart and spice. I doubled the recipe and put it in the slow cooker on high for 4 hours. Great on a drizzly, cold day while watching football. Going to try it with a shot of rum next time.

Made for FYC Tag - We often have “bed & breakfast visitors”, some we know & others who are friends or family of our friends or family. We have 2 young ladies arriving today from Canada for a 3-dy stay & I know little about their likes/dislikes. Winter-like temps also arrived in Iceland in recent dys, so this “hot cup” & coffee will be their breakfast drink options. I will have both w/them B4 they leave for their dys of sightseeing. I’m a huge coffee fan, but this stuff is tasty, addicting & made my kitchen smell divine as you promised. I expanded the recipe & made it yesterday evening. I used 1 ltr each of the juices & scaled the spicing accordingly. I didn’t have whole allspice, so did research on the net to find the right ratio using grd allspice. This added an extra step to the prep since I filtered the finished product thru coffee filters. I awoke today w/my taste test still on my mind & am already planning to buy more supplies for your recipe. Thx for sharing it w/us. :-)
