  • 750 ml dry red wine
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 orange thinly sliced
  • 4 whole cloves
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 star anise
  • 1 sprig fresh rosemary


  • Pour the red wine and honey in a small saucepan and stir until well combined.
  • Add the oranges, cloves, cinnamon sticks, and star anise. Heat the mixture on low-medium heat until just before a simmer, or it’s hot to the touch.
  • Reduce the heat to low immediately and cover. Watch carefully to ensure it doesn’t simmer or boil.
  • Cook for 10 minutes, then add the rosemary and cook for an additional 10 minutes. Keep a close watch and reduce heat if needed.
  • Remove from the heat and allow to cool for 5 minutes before serving.


  • Dry red wines with high alcohol content such as California Merlot, Zinfandel or Cabernet Sauvignon work best for this recipe. 
  • Be careful not to allow this to simmer or boil as the alcohol will vaporize above 173F.
  • Remove from heat immediately upon cooking and keep warm with a lid over the pan.
