Ingredients
  • 4 black tea bags
  • 2 cups cranberry juice cocktail
  • Six 15-ounce cans Italian orange soda
  • One 14-ounce can jellied cranberry sauce, cut into small cubes
  • Orange zest curls, for garnish
Directions
  • Bring 1 quart water to a boil, then remove from the heat and add the tea bags. Steep the tea, dunking the bags occasionally, 10 minutes. Remove the tea bags. Add the cranberry juice and stir. Refrigerate until chilled completely, about 1 hour.
