2 bottles of red wine
2 cinnamon sticks
Pour 2 bottles of red wine into a large pan. Add 1 orange studded with 12 cloves, the pared zest of 1 lemon, a 2-inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled and cut into slices, 2 cinnamon sticks, 4 tablespoons of brandy, 1/2 cup of demerara sugar, the juice of 1 orange and 1 thinly sliced orange. Bring almost to a boil on medium heat, stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Turn the heat down and simmer for 30 minutes, then serve in glasses.
Mulled wine can be left warming on the stove all evening, but don't let it boil or the alcohol will evaporate. If you want to prepare it ahead of time, heat the wine, spices, lemon rind, sugar and the orange studded with cloves to a simmering point. Then turn off the heat, and let it marinate for a few hours before adding the orange juice, brandy and orange slices.
