Apricots lend golden color and goodness to this fruity beverage
1 can (16 ounces) apricot halves, undrained
4 cups unsweetened pineapple juice
2 cups apple cider
1 cup orange juice
18 whole cloves
6 cinnamon sticks (3-1/2 inches), broken
Additional cinnamon sticks, optional
In a blender or food processor, blend apricots and liquid until smooth.
Pour into a large saucepan. Add pineapple juice, cider and orange juice.
Place the cloves and cinnamon sticks in a double thickness of cheesecloth;
bring up corners of cloth and tie with a string to form a bag. Add to
saucepan. (Or place loose spices in saucepan and strain before serving.)
Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 15-20 minutes. Serve hot in
mugs. Garnish with cinnamon sticks if desired. Yield: 2 quarts.
