Spiced Cranberry Cider

I love to make this in the Fall time. It's always a crowd pleaser and the aroma that it gives my house is wonderful! I like to make it on Halloween night and during the Thanksgiving season.

1 Qt apple cider
1 Qt cranberry juice drink
1/4 Cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 tsp. whole cloves
2 (3-inch) cinnamon sticks
1 small lemon, thinly sliced

*Bring first 6 ingredients to a boil in a dutch oven, stirring often
*Reduce heat and simmer 15-20 minutes
*Discard spices and lemons
*Garnish if desired

(I discard the spices, but I like to leave the lemons in the mixture, because it tastes so good with the fresh lemon and it's pretty!).
