Warm Cranberry Citrus Drink

Warm Cranberry Citrus Drink on SixSistersStuff.com


It’s the most wonderful time of the year!!! Unfortunately, it’s also the time of year that my family always tends to catch colds. My mother-in-law had this drink simmering the last time we were at her house and it was seriously the best thing for our sore throats! Keep the leftovers in the fridge and then heat up a cup when you need something to warm you up and soothe your throat.

  • 3 cups fresh cranberries
  • 6 1/2 cups water, divided
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • dash of cloves
  • 2/3 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2-4 cinnamon sticks
  • fresh cranberries and orange slices for garnish


  1. Place cranberries and 2 1/2 cups of water in a large saucepan. Bring water to a boil and cook over medium heat until the berries pop (takes about 15-20 minutes).
  2. Strain through a fine sieve (strainer), reserving the juice and discarding the cranberry skins. Pour the juice into a large bowl and set bowl aside.
  3. In a large saucepan, combine the rest of the water (4 cups) and 1 1/2 cups sugar, cinnamon, and cloves. Bring water to a boil and cook until sugar is completely dissolved.
  4. Pour water into bowl with cranberry juice, then add orange juice, lemon juice, and cinnamon sticks. Mix well and serve.
  5. Garnish with fresh raspberries and sliced oranges


You can keep this warm by keeping it on the stovetop on low or in a crock pot on low, stirring well before serving. It is also delicious served chilled.
