Ingredients

1 bottle of red wine (there is no need to use an expensive wine, even a cheap boxed wine will do)

1 Clementine or orange

4 strips of clementine/orange peel

200 g caster sugar

1 cinnamon stick

1 vanilla bean, halved

1 teaspoon nutmeg

A shot of rum or brandy (optional, well not really)

Method

Squeeze the clementine juice into a saucepan and add the sugar and citrus peels.

Add the spices and bring the mixture to a boil, constantly stirring.

As soon as it boils add 1/2 cup of red wine. Allow it to simmer slowly until it is reduced to a syrupy consistency.

Add the rest of the bottle of wine, cover, and as soon as it is warm, serve. Don’t boil unless you want it to be sin alcohol (non-alcoholic)!

If you want an extra kick add a shot or rum or brandy. 

Garnish with orange slices and cinnamon sticks. Drink.

Make up your own unique version

Use white wine: This recipe is also delicious when made with a dry white wine.

Use a different liqueur: Instead of brandy, add in some Cointreau, bourbon or cognac.

Use a chai tea bag: In place of the cloves and star anise
