Mulled Wine

This is one of the best hot drinks ever! I had this the first time in Paris in the winter, and this is only the second time I've ever had it. It's so much better when it's homemade! Probably because half the fun is making it :)

1 orange (sliced)
8 cloves
1 liter bottle dry red wine
1 1/2 cups apple juice
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 lemon (sliced)
2 cinnamon sticks

Simmer for 30-40 minutes (do not boil!). For a kid-friendly version, leave out the wine and replace with equal quantity apple cider. A very different desert drink from regular hot cider or hot chocolate!
