And folks, not only is it delicious, but strikingly potent.
Here’s my lil recipe. Feel free to duplicate it, add your own touches, what have you. Drink Responsibly.
I take a quart of burgundy, and to that, add a pint of sweet vermouth. Toss a half cup of sugar in on top of that. To the pot that this all going in, I add orange peel, a touch of cinnamon, cloves, and maybe a hint of nutmeg, if I’m feeling particularly snippy.
Heat it to just below boiling, then cover. Reduce the heat to a bare simmer, and steep it for 20 minutes or so, your call. Take it out with a ladle, and sip it from a cup that can handle the heat.
My favorite wintertime alcoholic drink. Enjoy!
