    Looking for hot spice winter drinks that are non-alcoholic.

    I love spiced drinks for the winter, but I only have two recipes. I am looking for a little variety. Can't have alcohol in them because of a heart problem. If you have any to share, please do.
    Thanks,
    Becky.

    Here's my favorite. The "spice" is from cinnamon red hot candies.

    • 2 quarts water
    • cup orange juice
    • 2 cups pineapple juice
    • cup lemon juice
    • cup sugar
    • 2 quarts cranberry juice cocktail
    • 8 oz. cinnamon candies (“red hots”)
    • 4 tea bags

    In a large pan, heat everything except the teabags. Bring to a simmer and stir to ensure the cinnamon candy is melted. Add the teabags and simmer for at least 10 minutes. Remove the teabags and serve hot. You can put in a warm crockpot to keep hot for a longer period of time. Cinnamon candy canes can be substituted for the red hots if necessary.
    Remember the teakettle...it is always up to its neck in hot water, yet it still sings!

    My daughter loves my hot spiced cider. I just put a gallon of apple cider in the crock pot, add 4 cinnamon sticks, 20 whole cloves, and a little brown sugar to taste. Turn on high for about an hour to heat, then down on low. We will have some tomorrow for our Christmas Eve gathering. It's easy and good, and makes the house smell great too.

    I make this every fall and everyone loves it. If you can't find cranberry jell-o any other powdered cranberry powdered mix works(Crystal Light)

    Mix in container:
    2 packages sugar-free cranberry jell-o or 6 Crystal Lights
    1 package pineapple jell-o, sugar free, if possible, but hard to find
    1 package sugar-free orange jell-0
    1 T. ground cloves

    Put into airtight container and mix 1 T. with hot water. This is my own recipe and I just make it to taste, so I'm not sure of the measurments. Just play around with it until the taste is right. If it is not sweet enough add some splenda.

    4 cups apple juice or cider
    2 cup cranberry juice
    2 cup pineapple juice
    stud an orange with a few cloves
    1 or 2 cinnamon sticks
    Put in crock pot on high for one hour and low for a few more hours. Remove orange and cinnamon sticks. Leftovers can be refrigerated and heated in the microwave whenever you want a warm treat.

    My friend always makes a drink she calls "witches Brew"...it is absolutely delicious!
    It is simply 2 parts apple cider and 1 part orange juice, heated, served in mugs with a cinnamon stick. Very good, very simple!!!
