  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 2 cups pineapple juice
  • 2 cups grapefruit juice
  • 1 1/2 cups apricot juice

Combine sugar and water in a saucepan. Add cinnamon. Tie ginger, cloves, and allspice in a cheese cloth bag and add. Bring to boiling point, and boil 3 minutes. Remove spices and add fruit juices.
