Not exactly a sangria today, and it's no longer the holidays, which this drink is known for in Germany. But! This is a warm wine also known as an after-ski drink for tourists. After you come in out of the snow, it is supposed to make you glow with warmth again. ☺ And since I know a lot of you all did't get to experience the low 70's weather we Floridians had today, I figured you would appreciate a nice warm glass of this. Cheers!
- 3/4 cup water
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 1 orange
- 10 whole cloves
- 1 (750 milliliter) bottle red wine
Prep: 10 m | Cook: 35 m
- In a saucepan, combine the water, sugar, and cinnamon stick. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer.
- Cut the orange in half, and squeeze the juice into the simmering water. Push the cloves into the outside of the orange peel, and place peel in the simmering water. Continue simmering for 30 minutes, until thick and syrupy.
- Pour in the wine, and heat until steaming but not simmering. Remove the clove-studded orange halves. Serve hot in mugs or glasses that have been preheated in warm water (cold glasses will break.)
