  • 1 750-ml bottle full-bodied red wine, such as Cabernet Sauvignon
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 zest and juice of 1 orange
  • 5 whole cloves
  • 2 star anise
  • 1 1-inch piece fresh ginger, sliced
  • 3 1/2 cups pomegranate juice
  • pomegranate arils and clove-studded orange, for garnish (optional, but encouraged!) slices


  • Pour the wine into a large pan and add cinnamon sticks, orange zest and juice, cloves, star anise and ginger. Bring the mixture just to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool, pour into a pitcher, and refrigerate.
  • When the wine has fully cooled, add the pomegranate juice to the pitcher and stir. Serve over ice, topped with pomegranate arils and clove studded orange slices.
