As the temperatures drop and the holiday season approaches, there’s nothing quite like a warm, aromatic drink to infuse your gatherings with comfort and cheer. This simple yet delightful warm spiced red wine recipe is the perfect addition to your seasonal repertoire. Combining the richness of red wine with a blend of spices and citrusy sweetness, this concoction is sure to become a favorite at your table.
- 1 bottle red wine
- 1/2 oz TEAZONE Ginger Syrup
- 1/2 oz TEAZONE Orange Syrup
- 1/2 oz TEAZONE Lemon Syrup
- 1 oz TEAZONE Dark Brown Sugar Syrup
- 8 cloves
- 2 star anise
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- 1 sliced apple
- 1 sliced orange
- Toasting the Spices: Begin by awakening the aromas of the cloves, star anise, and cinnamon. Place these spices in a skillet over low heat for about a minute. This toasting process will unlock their flavors, enhancing the overall richness of your drink.
- Creating the Infusion: Transfer the roasted spices into a cooking pot. Add all three syrups (Ginger, Orange, Lemon), the sliced apple, the sliced orange, and pour in about one-third of the red wine. Allow this flavorful mix to simmer gently for about 5 minutes, letting the ingredients meld together.
- Blending with Red Wine: Once the initial infusion has simmered, pour in the remaining two-thirds of the bottle of red wine. This step introduces the richness of the wine into the already aromatic mix.
- Simmering to Perfection: Over low heat, allow the combined mixture to simmer. Watch for the telltale signs—tiny bubbles rising to the surface—that indicate the drink is reaching an ideal temperature. This should take approximately 10 minutes.
- Strain and Serve: Once the concoction has simmered to perfection, it’s time to remove the spices. Strain the liquid to separate the flavorful elements, leaving you with a beautifully aromatic and smooth warm spiced red wine.
This soul-warming elixir is ready to be served in your favorite mugs or heat-resistant glasses. Garnish with a cinnamon stick or an orange twist for an added touch of elegance.
- Cozy Gatherings: Whether it’s a quiet night in with loved ones or a festive holiday gathering, this warm spiced red wine adds a delightful touch to any occasion.
- Pairing: Serve alongside a spread of cheeses, nuts, or even light desserts. Its warm, spiced notes complement a wide range of flavors.
- Customization: Feel free to adjust the sweetness or spice levels according to your preferences. Experiment with different types of red wine for diverse flavor profiles.
