As the days grow shorter, and there is a chill in the air, warm up by the fire with the deliciously soothing creation using Numi Orange Spice tea bags.
- 16 (1 box) Numi Orange Spice tea bags
- 1 bottle (750ml) red wine
- 1 bottle (750ml) port
- 1 bottle (750ml) vodka
- 2 oranges quartered
- 8.75 oz. natural sugar cubes
- 4 qt pot, lid
- 1 metal sieve
Squeeze orange quarters and drop them into a large pot along with all tea bags
Pour all red wine and port wine into pot and simmer for 1 hour
Turn temperature to high and add vodka. Put sugar cubes into metal sieve
Light liquid on fire and slowly dip metal sieve into and out of liquid (Sugar should catch on fire, begin to caramelize and drip into the liquid) Safety Note: Do not use exhaust fan and keep lid nearby and use if flame becomes too high. After sugar has dissolved, remove sieve, put lid on and turn off heat.
Allow to cool and then remove contents by straining into another pot
Serve warm in little espresso/tea cups. Can be re-bottled and used at a later date.
