The recipe I was using only wanted cinnamon, but I really wanted the flavor of Christmas. To me the essence of Christmas is this liquer I tried at Zuni Cafe in San Francisco this summer. So I pretty much combined like cloves, allspice, cinnamon, and nutmeg (also a dash of ginger).
Then I stirred in the booze-soaked fruits and some lemon zest.
Then I baked it for 45 minutes, and cooled it for 10. I put a lot more booze on a bartowel.
