Hot Cranberry Drink

We had a mild winter until last week. But now the temperatures have dropped down and it has become windy and rainy.  What this means is that, no one at home, including me, doesn't like to have our daily fruits. Even the fluid intake has gone down drastically  from a minimum of 8 cups to barely 5 cups or so. I  was searching for a drink that is warm and has fruit in it and here it was.. An ideal drink for those cold and wet days. Also, it being loaded with the goodness of vitamin C and warm spices, would be a good cold remedy too.
Recipe adapted from Allrecipes.com
Ingredients
2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
6 cups water, divided
1 cup sugar
3 (3 inch) cinnamon sticks
7 whole cloves
1/2 cup fresh orange juice
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

Method:
In a large saucepan, bring cranberries and 2 cups water to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer for 5-7 minutes or until berries pop. Stir in  sugar, cinnamon and cloves, return to a boil.Simmer till the sugar is dissoloved for about 5 minutes. Strain; discard pulp ,cloves and cinnamon sticks.Add orange,lemon juices and rest of the water  heat though. Serve hot.
