This is my own personal recipe that is both delicious and a festive purple color.
Mulled Cider and Wine
4 cups of good quality apple cider
4 cups of orange-pineapple juice
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1 small tea infuser full of mulling spices (highly recommend Williams Sonoma)
1 piece of fresh ginger, peeled and chopped and placed in tea infuser
1 lemon, scrubbed and sliced
1 orange, scrubbed and sliced
1 bottle of Cruz Garcia Real Sangria (imported from Spain)
Combine first 7 ingredients in a large, non-aluminum saucepan. Simmer for 30 minutes. Pour in wine; stirring until thoroughly heated. Serve warm. Makes approximately 12 cups.
