Keyword: christmas, drink, gluten free, holidays, liqueur, vegan, wine
Ingredients
  • 1 liter Red (dense, rich) wine
  • 400 gr sugar
  • 3 tsp vanilla aroma
  • 1/2 lemon (juice)
  • 4-5 cloves
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 2-3 orange zest slices
  • 150 gr grappa
  • 100 gr rum
Instructions
  1. In a pot add wine, sugar, vanilla, lemon juice, cinnamon, cloves, orange zest and whisk well

  2. Cook over law-medium heat and bring it to a boil

  3. Add the grappa and the rum, whisk and let simmer for at least an hour (less if you want a more alcoholic liqueur)

    [As I say in the post above, while it simmers, either areate the kitchen or leave the room to avoid side effects from the evaporating alcohol]

  4. Let it cool down completely, then filter and pour in a glass bottle and refrigerate for a few hours

  5. Serve cool (not cold)!
