Christmas Tea

Ok, that's just the name. There isn't any actual tea in this recipe.This is a favorite of our family's and we serve it every year.

Christmas Tea

1 small can frozen lemonaide
1 small can frozen orange juice
Cranberry juice cocktail
About 1 cup sugar (adjust to taste)
1/2 cup red hots
3or 4 cinnamon sticks
7 or 8 cloves
1 1/2- 2 cups water

Using a crock pot, add all ingredients together . You probably will not use all of the cranberry jouice as it probably won't fit in the crockpot.I usually have about 1/3 of the bottle leftover. That's ok, there will be plenty added for flavor. Sugar and water can be adjusted to increase or lessen the tartness. Heat on high until sugar and red hots have melted. Reduce to low and leave on low to keep the drink hot during your holiday get-together. Enjoy!
