Double or triple recipe as desired (note: don't increase the cloves until you have tasted it, as fresh ground cloves can really come through.) Use a light hand with the cloves, or omit. They can give an exotic, warm taste -- or they can take over, and it's a fine line, for sure. Adjust flavours as desired for your family's traditions: sprinkles of fine lemon or orange zest done with a Microplane, served with a cinnamon stick, dusted with cocoa powder, etc, etc... Sweeten more to taste as desired; this is on the less sweet side to allow for other flavours such as a splash of real rum or brandy to be added. Instead of the cinnamon, clove and nutmeg, you can use 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice mix.
