make sure your juice is COLD - below room temp- to avoid evaporating the alchohol
I tried this drink years ago while on vacation with friends and I had to have the recipe. I've made it several times and have only one suggestion. When transfering to bottles or jars, use a new knee high nylon over a hand strainer to help cut down on the "pulp". You will have to rinse it often. Oh, also, try warming it up in the microwave. Thats the only way i drink it. :)
This was very good, and fragrant. Recieved compliments. Served in a crock pot and set the everclear on the side for people to choose to use it or not. Next time, take the cinnamon sticks out afterboiling, and put into cups. That way the presentation is still beautiful, but the whole bowl isn't too cinnamon-y.
