This is a warm, very lightly spiced wine, spiked with flowery passion fruit juice. Passion fruit sorbet can stand in for fresh juice; use 3/4 cup of melted sorbet and don't add any sugar.
- 2 bottles dry red wine, such as Côtes du Rhône or Merlot
- 6 star anise pods
- One 3-inch cinnamon stick, broken in half
- 1 teaspoon whole allspice berries
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup fresh passion fruit juice
- 5 full slices of orange, cut in half
In a medium saucepan, combine the wine, star anise, cinnamon and allspice. Simmer over moderate heat for 5 minutes. Cover and remove from the heat. Let the wine steep, covered, for 20 minutes.
Whisk the sugar into the passion fruit juice until dissolved.
Just before serving, reheat the wine, but do not boil. Stir in the passion fruit juice. Place half an orange slice in each of 10 brandy snifters and ladle in the wine, leaving the spices behind; serve.
