Hot Cranberry Sangria
Category : Beverages, Alcoholic
6 cups cranberry juice
2 cups orange juice
2 cups dry red wine
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 cinnamon sticks (about 3 inches long)
1/2-1 teaspoon whole cloves
1 pinch nutmeg
2 oranges, cut in wedges
1 lemon, cut in wedges
1 cup cranberries
Heat all ingredients in a saucepan on medium low heat, stirring occasionally, until sugar is dissolved.
When liquid is hot but not boiling, remove from heat.
Let sit 5 minutes, then strain through a fine sieve, reserving fruit.
Pour liquid into mugs or heat resistant glasses, adding reserved fruit for garnish.
(Filled with fruit and infused with warm spices, this drink is just as comforting served without the red wine).
