1 bottle vin rouge fruité (which I took to mean cheap, fruit-forward, full-bodied red)
(side note: a bottle here cost us 1E 70!)
1/2 c brown sugar
zest of 1 orange
2 whole cloves
2 cinnamon sticks
1/2 c cognac
Let simmer lightly 10-15 mins and then let rest another 10 mins or so. It's even better the next day.
A votre santé!
