Place all ingredients in a kettle, or a pot.

Turn off heat.

Stir to dissolve all the honey and mix all the flavours.

The longer the wine sits with all the ingredients, the more tasty it will get. Can be re-heated.

Kettle makes it easy to serve immediately. A ladel can be used for serving, if you use a pot.

This is an amazing warm-me-up drink, served in fat mugs, in between toboggan runs or when taking a break while skating on our back-yard pond.
