Expert Tips

If you like, cover and refrigerate spiced wine up to one week. Just reheat until hot (do not boil) before serving.

Citrus fruits and spices such as cinnamon, cloves and allspice are the secret to making delicious spiced wine. You can also use granulated sugar in this recipe, but brown sugar adds a delightful touch of caramel sweetness.
