Ingredients

  • 1 navel orange
  • 4 cups apple juice
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 2-inch piece fresh ginger, thinly sliced
  • 6 whole allspice berries
  • 10 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 bottle dry red wine

Preparation

  1. Using a vegetable peeler, peel the zest from the orange in long strips. (Reserve the fruit for another use.)

    In a large saucepan, gently simmer the zest, apple juice, honey, ginger, allspice, and 2 cinnamon sticks for 20 minutes. Stir in the wine and cook just until heated through. Serve hot with the remaining cinnamon sticks.

    Tip: For an extra touch, spike it with a splash of Cointreau. Add 1/4 cup Cointreau or some other orange-flavored liqueur to the pot.
