Wednesday's Chow - Hot Cranberry Cider

by Callie Hutton

This week's geust offers up a yummy hot drink in time for the cool autumn nights.  Callie posted a wonderful blog on Monday about naming characters. If you haven't stopped by A Rose by Any Other Name... and read it yet, do so now! 

Hot Cranberry Cider

Apple Cider is very popular this time of the year, but I found this recipe for Hot Cranberry Cider, which is absolutely wonderful to sip while gazing into the fireplace. Be sure to have your romance novel handy, when you do!

  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 cinnamon sticks, plus additional sticks to use at stirrers
  • 1 tablespoon whole cloves
  • 8 cups cranberry juice
  • 6 cups apple juice


Put the sugar, cinnamon sticks and cloves in the basket of a large coffee percolator. Put the juices in the bottom of the percolator. Let the mixture perk as if making coffee. Serve with cinnamon stick stirrers, if desired.
