Spicy CranCitrus Drink

Christine Whisenhunt


This is another drink I found that will warm you up on a cold night. And, not only does it sound delish, it's also going to make the house smell amazing! I have listed the recipe in it's original form and noted the changes I would make.

Note: This is a TOH recipe and the photo is theirs as well.

How to Make Spicy CranCitrus Drink


  • 1If using candies:

    In a pan, cook the cranberries in 2 cups of water until they pop, then strain. Reserve the juice and set it aside. Discard the skins.

    In the same pan, combine the sugar, candies, cloves and remaining water. Cook until all is dissolved. Add all the juices and heat through. Remove the cloves. Serve while still hot.
  • 2If using cinnamon sticks instead of candies:

    I say throw it all in a pan and cook it until the cranberries burst, then strain it and wa-la, done!
