Ancient Fire Mulled Wine

This mulled wine has it all! Aromas that fill a room, great flavor and lots of warmth for celebrating with family and friends on cold winter days.

Ancient Fire Mulled Wine

1 bottle red wine, good but inexpensive
½ cup water
¼ cup superfine sugar
3 oz brandy
2 large cinnamon sticks
3 cloves
3 allspice berries
2 lemon slices
1 orange slice
3 dashes orange bitters

Boil the water, sugar, spices and citrus and then take it off heat and allow it to steep for ½ hour. Add the wine and slowly reheat to below boiling. Add the brandy and bitters and mix. Strain and serve hot.

This recipe can easily be multiplied and never seems to last long.

Happy Holidays!!!
