I do not like wine so I have not tried this recipe but the ingredients do look very interesting.

Very nice! A little "bite" from the peppercorns, and loved the addition of cardamom! Recipe doesn't say what size bottle, and I assume for 6-8 servings it would be the large (gallon (3 liter))size. I used a 750 ml size and cut everything in half. I also cut the sugar down to a fourth, since we don't like it too sweet. A nice "Boxing Day" warmer-upper! Made for Let's P-A-R-T-Y!
