Spiced Wine Liqueur | Gluten free * Vegan
This Spiced Wine Liqueur is easy to make, rich, dense and oh so aromatic, the perfect spirit to serve during the Holiday Season!
- 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
In a pot add wine, sugar, vanilla, lemon juice, cinnamon, cloves, orange zest and whisk well
Cook over law-medium heat and bring it to a boil
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]
Let it cool down completely, then filter and pour in a glass bottle and refrigerate for a few hours
Serve cool (not cold)!
