This recipe is a beautiful addition to your typical holiday party beverage service. It warms you up and looks gorgeous as well. It is a perfect drink to serve from a slow cooker set on low. If you happen to have leftovers, this can be strained and refrigerated for up to 24 hours. However, if refrigerated with the fruit and spices, it will become bitter.
