  • 8 cups apple juice or cider
  • 2 cups cranberry juice
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. allspice
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 orange
  • whole cloves


Turn the crock-pot on high and pour in the apple and cranberry juices. Stir in the sugar and allspice, then add cinnamon sticks. Stud the orange with the cloves, about 25 or 30 cloves should do the trick, and toss it in. Cover the pot and cook on high for 1 hour. Change the setting to low and allow to simmer for 3 more hours, then serve.

Where is the wine? Also rum is great! Just a touch, and not for the young un's!

  • ale or beer, about 3 or 4 pints
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup mixed spice (cinnamon sticks and whole cloves are also excellent)
  • Ad
  • 2 or 3 small sweet apples, cut up
  • 1 1/4 cups pineapple juice
  • 1 1/4 cups orange juice
  • the juice of 2 lemons


Combine ingredients in a saucepan. Place over a slow flame; then, before it begins to boil, take off the heat and whip up some cream. Let this float on top of the brew like foam.

Put in a suitably large bowl (the more ornate the better)
