We were given a bottle of Merlot, normally we do not drink Merlot. However when we saw this recipe, we thought we wold give it a try. It was really good, The thing we did was increase the sugar, orange juice and brandy. that did the trick, It was wonderful. plus it made our house smell wonderful.
Was looking for a warm drink for ringing in the new year at below freezing temperatures. This treat was a hit at our party and kept everyone toasty! The first sip is a powerful one, though, even using the fruitier ruby port!
