Chilly nights are upon us, but by no means should we just hibernate and wait out the cold wishing for Spring’s sweet kiss.

This is the perfect time of year to institute family game night. If you don’t already have this night set up as part of your regular routine, falling temps is an excellent opportunity to get it going.

Craving something more than just a night with the kids?  Why not have a few friends come over for a pot luck dinner and great conversation. Even a game or two! You come up with the theme and then run with it.  I say any excuse for a party is always a good one!

You can wow your guests with this awesome drink recipe that everyone will surely love. The original recipe actually takes about 6 months (and sometimes longer) before it is ready. Fortunately this variation is much simpler and less time consuming.

Have fun with this!

What You Need:

6  cups water
3 cans cranberry juice concentrate
1 can frozen orange juice concentrate
