  1. Combine pineapple juice, cider, brandy, liqueur, simple syrup and lemon peel in small sauce pan. Heat until just simmering, do not boil. Strain to remove lemon peel.
  2. Cinnamon and Clove Simple Syrup: Combine 1/2 cup water and 1/2 sugar in sauce pan, heat until sugar dissolves. Add 1 cinnamon stick and 4 whole cloves; reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes. Cool. Strain to remove cinnamon and cloves. (This can be stored in your refrigerator for 1-2 weeks)
