How I make spiced wine
Get a bottle of your favorite red wine. Doesn't matter if it's cheap.
Add some apple cider or orange juice
Toast whole spices: cinnamon stick, cloves, green cardamom pods, peppercorns.
Toast in a dry skilled or pot on low heat until the smell is released. Combine with wine mixture
Add slices of ginger and citrus fruit
Add honey or white sugar.
Simmer until hot, but don't boil.
Garnish with citrus slices, fresh grated nutmeg and/or a cinnamon stick

Oh I forgot: you can add some brandy if you want a little extra boozy kick

I made a very small amount because I'm not looking to get snockered. It's a little bit tart, but it's spicy and delicious.

Last year we made spiced wine and mead for Yule and drank them under blankets around the fire in our backyard. Under a full moon too. It was pretty nice. Would definitely do it again

@baronnarcveldt yeah this is worth doing if you've never done it before. If you want to treat your friends you can make a packet of spices and take it on the road

@socialskeleton it's a little early for spiced wine, but here in Oregon, the rains came early so I feel like it's practically winter

@interneteh it's gonna be 90 tomorrow in Houston but I'm gonna pretend it's fall.
