Breakfast Wassail

By Mary Richardson

1 (64 oz.) cranberry juice
1 (32 oz.)  apple juice
1 (12 oz.) can frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
1 (12 oz) can frozen pineapple juice, concentrated and thawed
3 to 4 cinnamon sticks
1-quart water, optional

In a large saucepan combine juices and cinnamon sticks.  Bring to a boil.  Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 1 hour.  Add water if desired.  Serve hot or cold.

Yield:  about 4 quarts
Preparation time:  15 minutes
Cooking time: 1 hour
Ease of preparation:  easy

Notes from Paula’s test kitchen:  If unable to find frozen pineapple juice, replace with 12 ounces of canned pineapple juice and only add water to taste.  Test Kitchen smelled heavenly while this was cooking.  We added 4 cloves on our second test and removed before serving.  Great Flavor and such a beautiful drink.
