Spiced Orange Wine

Spiced Orange Wine created by Rita1652

What could be more French countryside than pulling a chilled bottle of homemade (or at least home-doctored) wine from the fridge for a special celebration? This orange sipping wine is a little sweeter and stronger than a regular glass of white, and it's the perfect aperitif. Cook time is chill time.

    Made as directed, except halved the recipe since it was just me! I felt like a character in a Faulkner novel, sitting on my back porch sipping this, watching the sunset and listening to the crickets chirp. This is the perfect compliment to a Southern summer. Thanks for this! I will be using this repeatedly! [Made for Newest Zaar]
