The first time I made this I didn't follow directions, and I liked it better than the time I did. Instead of waiting to add the wine, I just threw the wine in together w/ the rest of the ingredients, and simmered it for about 1/2 an hour. It was less heady that way and could accommodate even the worst of red wines. Also, I put in entire orange wedges instead of orange rinds. Although I adjusted the water, sugar, and fruit juice for having only 3 cups of wine (thanks to the reviewer who said that 1 bottle = 3 cups), I kept the same amount of spices and oranges and left out the salt. Next time, I'd add even less sugar. It was a tad on the sweet side for me.

This is pretty good - we threw in some brandy too, and reduced the sugar - it was a little sweet. Also, one bottle of wine isn't 4 cups! 750 ml = 3 1/2 c. Not a big deal unless you are tripling the recipe ;-)

This recipe is excellent for a cold winter night and a gathering of good friends!! I tried it out on a group of women that get together once a month and it was the official drink for the next month as well. One of them used the recipe for a holiday party at her workplace and it was a smash there as well! This is an very smooth, sweet, warm drink to include at winter dinners.

Like this--I just reduce the sugar to 1/4 cup because otherwise it just seems to sweet to me, with all the other fruit juices. One trick I learned from Food Network is to put the cloves in the orange rind so they are easier to get out before serving.

delicious and always a hit - the juices make it not quite so potent. Simmers all day and makes the house smell wonderful

I took this to a Christmas party last night where it was a big hit and didn't last long. I sliced the oranges after peeling them and added them to the Crock-pot which I used for keeping it warm. My husband thought that adding some brandy next time might be a nice addition. Either way, it's a winner with us.
