On a chilly Bonfire Night, having a glass of this hot wine is a great way of warming you up from top to toe. It also gives you a cheeky glow.

Makes 8
Easy

Ingredients

1 bottle of white wine
400ml apple juice
2 sticks of cinnamon
2 star anise
100g demerara sugar
1 orange, strips of rind

Instructions

Place all of the ingredients in a saucepan over a medium heat. Stir until the sugar has dissolved and continue to heat for about 10 minutes for all of the flavours to infuse. Make sure you don’t allow the wine to boil as you will lose all of the alcohol. Serve in heatproof glasses or mugs.

PS... If you prefer, red wine can be used instead of white.
