My darling makes a mean mulled wine. Here is my take on it!

A very large jug will come in handy,
Then heat some wine and bottles of Brandy,
On top of your trusty kitchen stove
With an orange studded with more than one clove.
Then add in some orange and lemon peel
And orange juice with quite some zeal.
A cinnamon stick, some allspice too,
Will make for a gorgeous warming brew.
Now you will need some star anise,
And now just taste for expertise.
Then sugar’s needed and stacks of ginger,
To give a taste that is sure to linger.
Now ladle it into a warmed up cup,
Don’t be shy now, just drink up!
