With Christmas fever seemingly in full swing already this year, we wanted to share one of our favourite festive recipes from years gone by that you can make and enjoy in your own home – so you can get in the Christmas spirit early!
Bottle of red wine (Italian wine preferred)
1 x clementine (sliced)
1 x cinnamon stick
2 x star anise
4 x cloves
5 tbsp of caster sugar
The zest of half a lemon
(Optional – a splash of brandy or sloe gin)
Combine the red wine, sliced clementine, cinnamon, star anise, cloves, sugar, and lemon zest in a pan, and gently simmer for 10-15 minutes.
Remove the pan from the heat and allow the mix to cool
Stir in the brandy or sloe gin if using, and reheat to serve
