- 1 oz 24 ounce bottle of Stick Shaker Syrah or Stall Speed Merlot
- 1 orange peel
- 1 lemon peel
- 4 cloves
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 1 pinch of nutmeg
- 2 tbsps raw or white sugar
Throw everything except the wine into a pan.
Pour just enough wine to cover everything.
Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes to let the flavors infuse. Add the rest of the wine and the optional brandy. Warm through.
For ease of serving keep in a slow cooker and ladle into glasses, or pack in a thermos and take on a winter hike or skiing.
