1 (12 ounce) can frozen apple juice (or cider)
3 can-fuls (36 ounces water )
1 (11.5 ounce) apricot nectar
¼ cup Whole Foods Cider Mate (or similar mulling spice blend)
Pour all liquid ingredients into carafe of percolator. There is no need to stir.
Install percolator basket. Place spices in basket. Put on lid. Turn on percolator and let percolate 20 minutes before serving.
Note: If you do not have a percolator, pour liquid ingredients into large pot. Tie spices in cheesecloth or tea basket. Simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. The recipe can be doubled easily.
Make as above, substituting cherry cider for other juices. (One half gallon cherry cider to ¼ cup spice blend.)
