Mulled Wine

Ingredients

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

Directions

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