 Ingredients List

  • 1 Liter dry red wine
  • 60 g Cinnamon
  • 60 g Ground ginger
  • 10 g Ground cardamom
  • 10 g Ground nutmeg
  • 10 Whole cloves
  • 50 cl Rose water (optional)
  • 100 g Sugar (up to 200)


Easy process: (more waste) Pour the wine and spices in a large
container. Wait 3 to 5 hours. Filter with a piece of old teeshirt.
Filter again if desired with coffee filter. Add sugar and adjust to
taste. Pour back in bottles or drink. Will keep at room temprature
for about 2 weeks.

Long process: (recommended) Pour wine into large container. Put
spices in a finely woven tight towel and tie shut making sure the
wine will flow thru the spices and be permeated. Let the spice bag
sit in the wine for 2 to 3 days, stirring occasionaly. Filter as
above and add sugar. This method results in more yield because the
spices wont turn into a slime blob at the bottom and use so much
