Here’s a perfect way to celebrate the Christmas holidays or to warm up when the winter wind blows. Claret refers to red wines of Bordeaux, but a hearty Shiraz or Merlot would work equally as well in this recipe.



  • 1 quart red wine
  • 3 tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 8 whole cloves
  • 1/2 lemon, sliced


  1. warm the claret over a low heat, preferably in a glass or stainless steel pot. Do not allow to boil.
  2. add the other ingredients
  3. stir until the sugar is dissolved
  4. serve warm, preferably in front of a roaring fire
