Makes enough for 1-2 people to be pleasantly happy
Ingredients: 1 cinnamon stick, 1 piece of star anise, 2 cardamon pods, 4 cloves, 1 bottle of red or white wine, 1/2 cup of sugar, 1-2 lemons or oranges
Notes: Red wine pairs better with oranges and white wine supposedly pairs better with lemons. For an extra fancy touch, garnish with slices of fruit.
Directions: Heat wine in a large pot with spices. Add juice of lemon/ orange, a piece of zest, and slowly dissolve the sugar. Once wine is popping hot, turn off the stove, and let it sit for 10 minutes. Serve.
