S/C/G: 198/190/140

Height: 5'7"

Default Spiced Cranberry Cider

1 64-oz bottle cranberry juice
8-10 oz apple juice
1/8 cup sugar, or to taste
3 sticks cinnamon
1 tsp (or thereabouts, I don't measure exactly) ground nutmeg
1 tbsp whole allspice

Combine all ingredients in large saucepan, stir to mix in the spices. Heat to boiling; cover and reduce heat to simmer. Let simmer for 15 minutes-half an hour or so. Remove from heat and strain with coffee filters to catch all the spices.

Usually, this recipe works out so perfectly in proportions that I can put the cider right back into the original cranberry juice bottle, to keep it in the fridge. It's wonderful to reheat for a morning drink instead of coffee or tea - about a minute and a half in the microwave will do it.
