Ingredients

  • 2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 (750-milliliter) bottle fruity red wine
  • 1/2 cup brandy
  • 1 cup fresh orange juice
  • Garnishes: fresh cranberries; orange, lemon, and lime slices

Preparation

  1. 1. Bring first 3 ingredients to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low, and simmer 5 minutes or until cranberries pop. Pour mixture through a wire-mesh strainer into a bowl, using the back of a spoon to squeeze out juice. Discard solids.
  2. 2. Transfer cranberry mixture to a large pitcher. Stir in wine, brandy, and orange juice. Chill 2 hours. Serve over ice; garnish with cranberries and fruit slices, if desired.
  3. To serve as a warm mulled cocktail, transfer mixture to a Dutch oven and heat just until it begins to boil. Garnish, if desired.
