This smells so good when it's percolating. Once you've used your coffeepot to make it, however, it always has the smell of cloves and cinnamon sticks in it! We recommend you dedicate a cheap percolator to this recipe.
- 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 3 cinnamon sticks, plus additional to use as stirrers
- 1 tablespoon whole cloves
- 6 cups cranberry juice
- 8 cups apple juice
- Light rum, brandy, or bourbon, optional
