Libations To Warm You To Your Tootsies


One gallon apple cider
1 - 6 ounce can frozen orange juice
1 - 6 ounce can frozen lemonade
1 cup packed brown sugar
6 whole cloves
6 whole allspice
2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Heat slowly. Suggestion: Put cloves and allspice in a spice ball so you can get them out easier.
Enjoy. Taste stronger the next day!

I got this recipe from my girlfriend after I had it at Thanksgiving. My only suggestion might be to cut back on the brown sugar as it's pretty sweet.

Now, for those of you who imbibe in adult beverages...

Hot Buttered Rum

Cream together:
1 lb. brown sugar
1 lb. confectioners sugar
1 lb. butter
1 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground cloves

Add 1 quart softened vanilla ice cream.

Place two tablespoons in mug, add one shot rum and fill with boiling water.

Batter will last a year in refrigerator. This makes a nice gift for friends who indulge when packaged in a fancy jar.
