Mulled (Hot Spiced) Wine
1.5 Liter bottle of Red Table Wine (I prefer Shiraz/Syrah or Red Zinfandel)
2 Cups POM (or other brand of Pomegranate juice)
1 Cup Cranberry Juice (Without Sugar - Not the Cocktail stuff)
1/2 Cup Light Brown Sugar (I used 1/4 cup plus 2 TB)
1/4 Cup Dark Brown Sugar
2 Cinnamon Sticks
1/2 Nutmeg; Cracked into about 3 pieces
5 All-Spice Berries
1 small orange; Cut into about 8 slices
Drag our the Slow cooker.
Mix the Wine, Juices, and Sugars together in the crock.
Add Cinnamon, Nutmeg, All-Spice and the orange slices.
Turn Slow cooker on High for about 2 hours or Low for 4 hours.
Ladle into glass coffee mugs, add another cinnamon stick as a stir stick and a slice of orange for garnish...
Great on a cold winters night to warm your cockles.

OK, A friend of mine made this for a little get together this year, it was absolutely delicious... a little sweet, but that can be changed by simply adding less sugar (I reduce the sugar by 2 TB)
