This one's a crowd-pleaser hot or cold. Brandy may not always grace the shelves of your liquor cabinet, but it's a warm and useful spirit, especially during the holidays.
1 bottle Red Wine (750ml)
1 cup Fresh Orange Juice
.5 cup Brandy
.5 cup Eli Mason Spiced Simple Syrup
Combine ingredients and warm over low heat. Garnish with clove-studded orange wedges. Can also be served cold: Mix in a pitcher, allow to sit 6-12 hours in the fridge, and then serve on the rocks with slices of apple and oranges.
