I love wine club
It makes me feel so posh. Like Downton posh.
And the presenters always ask my opinion after every wine because I’m the youngest person there by like 20 years. They’re always surprised I prefer reds too, since apparently most young people like whites.
Time to rewatch the Swann Inn scene? Except now it will be infinitely more painful *cries*
For anyone else currently snowed in:
750ml red wine
2 – 3 tbsp brown sugar
4 star anise
2 cinnamon sticks
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
The peel of 1 orange
Place in a saucepan over low heat and simmer, making sure not to boil the mixture, for 5 minutes or until fragrant (I prefer longer personally). Taste then dump as much goddamn sugar as you want in it. I prefer an extra cup or three myself cause that’s how I roll but you’re the one who’s drinking it, make it taste how you want.
Strain into warmed glasses or mugs and serve immediately. Enjoy!
