- 2 large pieces of lemon rind
- 8 tablespoons of sugar (or to taste)
- Turn your stove on to a medium heat and in a saucepan combine the red wine, cinnamon, cloves, allspice, lemon and orange rind. Heat this gently but do not bring it to the boil. Stir in 4 tablespoons of sugar and taste to see if you would like to add more. Add as you wish
