American.Kitchen's picture
  Cinnamon stick 8 , crushed
  Dried orange peel/0.25 cup 16 tablespoon ground orange peel 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs), minced
  Nutmeg 2 , crushed
  Allspice berries 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Whole cloves 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)

Combine all the ingredients in a bowl, tie in sachets of 1 tablespoon each in a double thickness of cheesecloth, and transfer to an airtight container.
One sachet of the mixture will flavor 1 quart of cider or wine.
Simply simmer the chosen beverage with a sachet for 20 minutes, ladle into mugs and garnish appropriately with a stick of cinnamon, fresh orange or lemon peel, and perhaps a sprinkling of additional spirits in the case of a wine punch, sherry; for cider, cognac or rum would be a ro bust flavoring.
