In This Recipe
- Wash and dry the orange and cut into slices.
- Put a pot on stove and pour in the wine and water, add sugar, vanilla essence, cloves, cinnamon stick and orange slice and slowly bring to a boil.
- When the wine comes to a boil, bring the temperature down to a light simmer and let it cook for a couple of minutes, stirring occasionally to melt the sugar. The wine should never boil vigorously, but gently. The longer you boil the wine, the less alcohol it will contain.
- Serve hot in glasses or cups, decorated with orange slices.
