750ML BOTTLE OF RED WINE
RIND OF 1 ORANGE
CINNAMON STICK (OR TWO)
½ CUP OF RAISINS
½ CUP OF BLANCHED ALMONDS (THE BROWN EXTERIOR REMOVED)
10 CARDAMOM SEEDS
¼ CUP HONEY
1 CUP OF PORT
1 CUP BRANDY
GLASS TYPE: MUG
Add the wine, orange rind, cinnamon stick(s), raisins, almonds, cardamom seeds, cloves and honey to a pot on the stove.
Let those simmer (not boil, simmer, baby bubbles form, a little steam comes off, but nothing crazy) for at least 30 minutes.
When you're ready to serve, you can remove the spices if you want (I don't, whoever gets a clove wins a prize!), and then add the port and brandy.
Ladle into mugs and enjoy the hygge.
