Christmas Drink

Note:   Technically, mixing all the ingredients for this tummy warming drink doesn't qualify as "baking", but I am always glad to know that I have batches of this ready in my freezer for the holiday season.    We plan to spend some time this fall in Gatlinburg and I am thinking of making a batch to take with us up there to enjoy on the front porch of our cabin.   Mmmm... toasty!

Christmas Drink

64 ounce cranberry juice
64 ounce apple juice
1/2 cup orange juice
1 T cinnamon
1 T whole cloves
2/3 cup sugar

Combine ingredients in a large stockpot.    Warm over medium heat until sugar is melted.     Remove the cloves from the mixture.    When ready to serve, garnish with orange slices and cinnamon sticks.
