This is a classic, simple recipe for a good hot winter drink. Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz/Syrah, or a blend of the two are suggested.


  1. Combine water with sugar and spices in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Boil for 5 minutes.
  2. Add the orange slices, remove pan from the heat and let sit for 15 minutes. Stir in the wine.
  3. Reheat gently over low heat, never allowing to boil. Serve hot, in heated glasses.

This was so easy and made the whole house smell delicious! I didn't want to lose any of the wine flavor, so instead of sugar I used a big dollop of honey and it was perfect. A very nice warm-up drink for a cold winter day ;)
