Now for those US readers of my Blog...if you want to try these recipes it might be a good twits to your Thanksgivings day! Maybe you could try one or two recipes ..just to try!!

Apple Cider Punch Cocktail Recipe
4 qt Apple Cider
3 sticks Cinnamon
6 oz (frozen) Orange Juice
6 whole Allspice
6 whole Clove
6 oz (frozen) Lemonade
1 cup (Packed) Brown Sugar
1 tsp (ground) Nutmeg
If you use the whole all spice and cloves, tie them in cheesecloth. Heat the mixture. Stir occasionally. If you want an alcoholic drink, rum would be nice.
This versatile drink has several variations — serve it hot or cold, with or without alcohol.
3 cup(s) pomegranate juice
1 1/2 cup(s) apple cider
1/4 cup(s) sugar
1/2 teaspoon(s) allspice berries
4 stick(s) (3 inches each) cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon(s) whole black peppercorns
1 orange, sliced into rounds
16 kumquats, sliced into 1/4-inch rounds
1/2 cup(s) apple brandy (optional)
Combine all ingredients except half of the kumquats and the brandy in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in brandy, if desired. For hot pomegranate-apple cider, reheat the spiced pomegranate mixture and divide among four mugs. Add remaining kumquat slices. Serve hot. For pomegranate-champagne cocktails, divide 1/2 cup of the cooled spiced pomegranate mixture between four champagne flutes. Add 4 ounces of chilled champagne to each glass and serve immediately.
