  • 1 bottle Jacob’s Creek shiraz
  • 1 cup Martell VS Cognac
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 3 cinnamon sticks
  • 3 whole cloves
  • 1 tbs grated nutmeg
  • ½ vanilla bean
  • 1 tbs orange zest


Pour the wine into a large pot heat over a low flame. Add sugar and spices as the wine begins to warm. Stir until sugar is dissolved and add brandy. Heat thoroughly but do not boil! Add orange zest. Let steep for 45 minutes over very low heat. More sugar may be added to taste at this time, stir well to dissolve. Serve hot and garnish with an orange slice. To intensify flavors, steep in the refrigerator overnight and serve hot the next day.
