Step 1

Zest the fruits and peel roughly adding the peel to the wine

Step 2

Place the zest, sugar, cloves, lightly snapped star anise, cinnamon and sliced vanilla pod to the sugar and cover just with wine and boil heavily until you have a thick syrup

Step 3

Once the syrup is ready turn down to a low simmer and pour in the rest of your wine along with the orange segments, feel free to add a slice or two of lemon and lime for a livlier alternative. and simmer for a further 5 minutes.

Step 4

Strain into a new pot and combine the chipotle extract (hot sauce) brandy, and squeeze the orange segments to release thier juices at this stage.

Use the syrup as a delicious table sauce perfect for christmas turkey.

Avoid the cheapest wine, £10 bracket should be ideal, feel free to combine for a different flavour with a strong earthy wine.
