Italian Spiced Wine to sip under your tree

Ashley and Jason Bartner, proprietors of La Tavola Marche Agriturismo and Cooking School, sends this to warm the cockles of our Christmas season hearts.

Italian Spiced Wine ~ Vin Brule'

1 liter of red wine
100 grams of sugar (just under 1/2 cup)
a few cloves
a stick of cinnamon
a bit of nutmeg
lemon peel grated (or half lemon, half orange peel)

Bring all ingredients to a low boil & add the sugar. Once the sugar is dissolved - lower flame. Filter or strain. Serve warm & enjoy!

And may this time of joy bring you hopes and memories as bright as the taste of this beverage.
