750ml red wine (we suggest our BMG Sangiovese or Shiraz Cab as it adds it's own spice characters to the mix). 150g castor sugar 1/2 cup orange juice peel of one lemon
Peel of half a lime Peel of one Orange 1 star anise 1 cinnamon stick 5 cloves 1 tsp fresh nutmeg pinch of ginger
1. Place all the ingredients, except the wine, into a large saucepan and place on medium heat. Add just a small glug of red wine to the pan to ensure the sugar is covered and let it cook for 4-5 minutes until it becomes thick and sticky. This should let all the spices infuse well.
2. Once the mixture has become sticky enough, add the rest of the wine and turn down the heat. You don’t want the wine to boil otherwise all the alcohol will evaporate! Let it cook for 5 minutes more and serve hot with fresh slices of orange.
