A quick version of mulled wine, this party drink highlights a wonderful blend of spice and citrus.
2 teaspoons whole cloves
1 teaspoon whole allspice
6 cups fruity red wine (such as Beaujolais or Pinot Noir)
6 cups apple cider
3/4 cup sugar
1 orange, thinly sliced
1 lemon, thinly sliced
1 lime, thinly sliced
How to Make It
Place first 3 ingredients on an 8" square of cheesecloth; tie with string. Place spice bag in a Dutch oven. Add red wine and remaining 5 ingredients; bring to a simmer over low heat (do not boil). Keep at a simmer while serving. Ladle into mugs.
Note: For a nonalcoholic version, omit wine and substitute more apple cider.
