Holiday Wassail II

Apricots lend golden color and goodness to this fruity beverage.


2 quarts (8 servings)


1 (16 ounce) can apricot halves, undrained
4 cups unsweetened pineapple juice
2 cups apple cider
1 cup orange juice
18 whole cloves
6 cinnamon sticks (3 1/2 inches), broken
additional cinnamon sticks, optional


In a blender or food processor, blend apricots and liquid until smooth. Pour into a large saucepan. Add pineapple juice, cider and orange juice. Place the cloves and cinnamon sticks in a double thickness of cheesecloth; bring up corners of cloth and tie with a string to form a bag. Add to saucepan. (Or place loose spices in saucepan and strain before serving.) Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 15 to 20 minutes. Serve hot in mugs. Garnish with cinnamon sticks if desired.
