  • 1 ⅓ cups water
  • 1 cup brown sugar firmly packed
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 6 whole allspice berries
  • 1 star anise pod
  • 7 whole cloves
  • 6 cardamon pods cracked
  • 3 inch piece ginger peeled and sliced
  • 2 whole oranges juiced
  • ½ fresh lemon juiced
  • 1 bottle Cabernet Sauvignon


  • Crack cardamom and remove seeds.
  • In a 2 quart pot, combine water, brown sugar, cinnamon sticks, allspice, star anise, cloves, cardamom seeds, ginger, orange juice, and lemon juice.
  • Cook over medium low heat, stirring occasionally, until reduced by half, about 20 minutes.
  • Add wine and heat through.


  • Make sure you use a cheap and very fruit forward Cabernet Sauvignons.
  • Don't let the syrup boil too much! You don't want it to turn into candy. Just keep an eye on it and adjust the temperature as needed.
  • Fresh ginger is the best way to go! It has so much more flavor than candied ginger.
  • Have fun with the decorating when you serve! Try orange twists, cinnamon sticks, slices of orange, whatever makes you happy.
