Lemonade Cider with Ginger Swizzle Sticks
  • 8  cups  apple cider or apple juice
  • 4  cups  lemonade
  • 2  tablespoons  packed brown sugar
  • 28  small chunks crystallized ginger
  • 8  inches  stick cinnamon, broken

1. In a 4- or 5-quart slow cooker combine cider, lemonade, and brown sugar.

2. For a spice bag, cut a 6-inch square from a double thickness of 100-percent-cotton cheesecloth. Place four pieces of ginger, the cinnamon, and allspice in the center of cheesecloth. Bring up corners of the cheesecloth; tie bag closed with 100-percent-cotton kitchen string. Add spice bag to slow cooker.
