Warm Winter Wine

7 Feb

Who doesn’t want to cuddle up with a warm soothing glass of wine in the winter?  This wine smells good and tastes even better.  It’s also super simple to make which is of utmost importance to me.  Even though I now have gas on in my apartment, I made this in the rice cooker.  It’s a miracle worker!

I made this warm winter wine based off this recipe.  All you need is:

  1. 1 bottle of Riesling
  2. 1 orange
  3. 1/2 lemon
  4. 3 cinnamon sticks
  5. 1/4c sugar
  6. 3 tbsp honey

Add all the ingredients except the honey.  Bring to a simmer and mix in the honey.  Simmer for 30 minutes, covered.

For best taste let cool a little before drinking.  Watch out for the fruit-it’s intense.
