  • 10 whole cloves
  • 2 large cinnamon sticks

  2. Puree blueberry mixture until smooth, then add in cloves and cinnamon. Continue lightly simmering for 20 minutes.
  3. Pour wine into the pot and reduce heat to a very slow simmer (don’t boil), at least until wine is warm (you can let it sit on low heat anywhere from 15 minutes to 3 hours).
  4. Strain before serving. Serve warm optionally garnished with a slice of orange and a cinnamon stick.

For a mocktail version swap out red wine with grape juice.
