Zombee Love Potion

I promised Mallori I would post the recipe for the cider I made at the Valentine themed Candles & Cocktails party. I knew I wanted to make something warm, since the last two weeks had been so harsh, but whenever I looked up recipes for cider, all I saw was apple cider ... and the recipes were pretty lame. The words "apple cider, heat, add apples and cinnamon" isn't really a recipe! So, I did what I usually do when I'm not sure how something is made ... I just go for it! It didn't turn out too badly. Give it a try if you'd like to warm  up one of these nights, but don't wait Spring will be here soon!

Zombee Love Potion

6ish cups of warm, Goji Berry Pomegranate tea
one cup apple juice
1/2 bottle of cranberry juice [not sure of the oz]
spiced rum to taste [which for us was, a lot]
apple slices, blackberries, orange slices
clove & cinnamon

add about six teabags to boiling water, steep for 5-7 minutes 
 remove teabags and add spiced rum 
 add apple and orange slices, steep for 5-7 minutes 
crush blackberries in a bowl with the back of a serving spoon
add juice and berries to mixture 
add the rest and keep the heat on med-low
you can add brown sugar for sweetness if you like, but I didn't
serve warm and watch everyone get toasty ♥
