Ingredients

  • 1 large orange
  • 1 medium lemon
  • 4 cups dry red wine
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 4 whole cloves
  • 1 vanilla bean
  • 1 cup brandy
  • Ice cubes, optional

Directions

Using a vegetable peeler, remove colored layer of peel from orange and lemon in strips, leaving the white pith. Cut fruit crosswise in half; squeeze juice into a large saucepan.
Add wine, sugar, cinnamon, cloves and citrus peels to pan. Split vanilla bean lengthwise. Using the tip of a sharp knife, scrape seeds from the center into wine mixture. Cook over medium-low heat 1 hour to allow flavors to blend, stirring occasionally. Transfer to a large bowl; cool completely. Let stand, covered, 24 hours.
Strain wine, discarding solids. Stir in brandy. Pour into glass bottles; seal tightly. Refrigerate at least 1 week. If desired, serve over ice. Yield: 22 servings (1-1/2 ounces each).
