Hot Cranberry Citrus Drink

This lovely rosy drink, with its appealing fresh fruit flavor, is not too sweet or too tart. This is a wonderful hot beverage to serve at Christmas or at brunch gatherings as an alternative to coffee, tea or cold juice.


12 servings


1 (12 ounce) package fresh or frozen cranberries
2 1/2 quarts water
2 cups orange juice
1 cup granulated (white) sugar
1 cup pineapple juice
2 tablespoons lemon juice
3 (3 inch) cinnamon sticks


In a large saucepan, bring cranberries and water to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer for 5 to 7 minutes or until berries pop. Stir in the remaining ingredients; return to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 25 to 30 minutes. Strain through cheesecloth; discard pulp and cinnamon sticks. Serve warm.
