Recipe by Kookaburra
On a cold, bleak day, this is ideal as a pre-dinner drink. This quantity makes 2 generous serves, or 4 small serves. Freshly squeezed orange juice, of course, is ideal - but you can get away with bottled orange juice.

Delicious! I doubled the recipe since others had said it doesn't make much. EXCEPT, I quadrupled the wine and tripled the orange juice. And I didn't have brandy so I used spiced rum as others said to do. Used a mediocre red wine and it was great! I'll stock up on the cheap stuff to make this all winter.
- 1⁄2 cup red wine
- 1⁄2 cup orange juice
- 1⁄4 cup brandy
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 pinch nutmeg
- Combine all ingredients in a heatproof jug (or in a saucepan).
- You can alter the proportion of orange juice to red wine according to taste.
- Microwave on HIGH for 1 1/2 - 2 minutes (or heat in a saucepan on the stove) until hot but NOT BOILING.
- Pour into wine glasses and serve.
