Vin Brule’ (Mulled Wine)

Vin Brulé (Mulled Wine)

1 (750 ml) bottle red wine. I like Appasimento from Puglia but also Barbera can be a good choice. 
150 gr sugar
75 gr Vecchia Romagna Brandy

1 orange 
1 lemon
2 cardamom seeds
2 sticks cinnamon
2 cloves
2 anise stars 

Wash the orange and lemon, and then cut the rinds. Place the fruit aside (or squeeze for some fresh juice).

Combine the rinds with all other ingredients in a large pot, and heat, stirring with a wooden spoon. Just before the wine reaches boiling point, remove from the heat.

Let the wine infuse, covered and off the heat, for at least 20 minutes. Strain, and serve.
