Autumn Tea Recipe

Begin with gathering together the ingredients. Remember you can serve this hot or cold, so you will want either a crock pot to mix it in for hot service or a large pitcher or punch bowl for serving cold. This recipe makes a full punch bowl. You will need a long handled spoon, liquid and dry measuring cups and spoons.

Mix in serving container:

  • 5 cups of brewed tea (40 oz.)
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon of Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • 1/3 cup of ReaLemon
  • 5 cups of sweetened apple juice (40 oz.)
  • 2 cups of sweetened cranberry juice (16 oz.)

Stir well and either heat or serve over ice.

Note: We served this recipe at a ladie's conference and did not have the ability to brew the tea. I served the above substituting already prepared sweetened tea for the brewed tea and the sugar. It worked out great!

I think you mean apple cider vinegar, which IS good for your diet. This isn't bad though...all juices and tea can't be too bad! Reduce the sugar and it could be very healthy! Thanks for reading! God Bless!
