No Holiday Goodies season of posts would be complete without something warm to sip to remove the late fall-early winter chill from the bones.
And this recipe with the clove-studded orange slices appears so festive!
In addition, have you ever noticed how the addition of cinnamon sticks to a brew makes the favor so out of this world yummy?
On the minus side, this recipe is a bit of a bear—the sieving, that is. But the taste and the warmth that spreads through you as you sip this delicious concoction make all of the effort seem worth it!
