count down to Thanksgiving #7- hot cranberry cider...

this is a pretty & easy make ahead drink for any cold day!  the clove studded oranges are really nice & festive.  it is nice also to be able to throw everything in the crock pot in the morning & not have to think about it again until you're ready to serve it.  

{hot cranberry cider}

4 cups cranberry juice cocktail
4 quarts apple cider
1 cup sugar
2 oranges, studded with whole cloves*
4 whole cinnamon sticks

Combine all ingredients in a large pot or crock pot.  Simmer on very low for several hours.

** clove studded oranges are very easy to make.  you can do any pattern.

I'm loving all these suggestions and hope to do a few of them for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
