Apple and Spice Vin Chaud
This autumnal drink, spiced with cinnamon and star anise, is bound to warm the cockles. It is especially welcome on Bonfire Night and around Christmas.
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.
|1 bottle||of white wine|
|2 sticks||of cinnamon|
|1||orange, strips of rind|
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.
