Ingredients

  • 1 quart cranberry juice
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 2 whole cloves
  • 1/2 cup cranberries
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions

  1. In a medium saucepan, combine the juice, cinnamon stick, and cloves and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer.

  2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine the cranberries, sugar, ground cinnamon, and 2 tablespoons of water and heat over medium-low heat, gently stirring, until the cranberries pop and are well coated with the sugar mixture.

  3. When cool enough to handle, thread 3 to 4 berries each on 4 decorative toothpicks or skewers. Pour the mulled cranberry juice among 4 mugs and garnish with the cranberry swizzle.
