Today I am mixing up a 'winter warmer' for my blog buddies in the Northern Hemisphere, and because I have not been keeping very good records of what I have or have not posted before I hope this one will at least come as a surprise?
1 bottle of red wine (unless you're inviting me as well in which case you had best double the whole recipe!)
3 tablespoons sugar
2 slices of lemon
2 slices of orange
1 cinnamon stick
Warm all ingredients in a saucepan until very hot. Do not boil (mustn't waste any of the alcohol)
Serve in a heated glass, and kick back and listen to this guy who has been around for years but never seemed to gain momentum outside of my lounge. I don't know why, as I think he's a great writer and has a nice gravelly voice....ladies and gents I give you "Mark Germino".....
