A very easy recipe to make and share during holiday parties or to bottle and give as a gift.



  • 2 bottles Merlot
  • 1 bottle ginger ale
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground nutmeg
  • ½ tsp ground clove
  • 4 to 6 oranges or tangelos
  • 6 to 10 cinnamon sticks
  • 1/2 bag of cranberries


  1. In a medium pot, combine Merlot, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. Let simmer for ten minutes, stirring occasionally until sugar is dissolved.
  2. Pour immediately into a sealed pitcher or other container. Stir in ginger ale. Chop apples and add them along with the orange slices, cranberries, and cinnamon sticks to the mixture. Cover and refrigerate to cool.
  3. For a more carbonated punch, add the ginger ale to the wine after it’s cooled … then it will keep the fizz.
