A nice bottle of your favourite vino, simmered with warming spices, is the perfect thing to thaw your heart and, as a bonus, make your home smell wonderful. Lana simmers hers on the stove, you can also make this in your crock pot.
* 750ml red fruity wine, like Zinfandel or Argentine Malbec
* 3-4 Tbsp sugar
* 1 orange, peeled, cut in slices
* 3-4 whole cloves
* 1 star anise (optional)
Combine all of the ingredients in a stainless steel pot and heat to boil on high. Turn the temperature to low and simmer, covered, 20-30 minutes. Serve in glasses with a piece of cinnamon and a piece of orange peel.
