Notes

To Serve for a Crowd- 
Use your instant pot to make this simple to serve to a crowd!
  • For a 6qt instant pot use 4 litres juice, 2 tsp spice mix.
  • For an 8 qt instant pot use 6 litres juice, 1 tbsp spice mix.
Heat on sauté until it start to steam, switch to keep warm, and 15 minutes later you're ready to serve! I leave a ladle in the pot with the lid off, it'll stay nice and hot on keep warm.
