Spiced Fruit Punch
This one is rather like an autumnal sangria!
1/3 cup sugar
12 inches stick cinnamon, broken
1/2 teaspoon whole cloves
4 cups apple juice, chilled
1 12-ounce can apricot nectar, chilled
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 750-milliliter bottles dry white wine, chilled
In a saucepan combine 1/2 cup water, sugar, and spices. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer 10 minutes. Chill, covered, 2 to 24 hours.
Strain spices from sugar water and discard. Combine with fruit juices. Pour into punch bowl; add wine. Makes 24 (about 4-ounce) servings.
