Grandma Kaye's Hot Spiced Apple Cider

This is a holiday tradition around our house.

4 c. water
2 c. sugar
1 can frozen lemonade (6 oz.)
1 can frozen orange juice (12 oz.)
2 qt. Apple cider or apple juice
1 small bag for spices (I use a brand-new sock for the bag, or a cheesecloth, tied with a string.)
whole ginger
whole cinnamon sticks
whole cloves
whole allspice berries

Fill the bag with the ginger, cinnamon, cloves, and allspice. Simmer water, sugar and bag of spices for about 30 minutes. Add the lemonade, orange juice, and apple cider. Simmer for about another 30 minutes. This makes the house smell delicious! Serve hot. Store leftovers in the refrigerator.
