Since I will be drinking it all winter, why not share? Sharing is caring, and even better this is all done in a slow cooker!
1 bottle red wine
3 cinnamon sticks
3 whole cloves
2 whole star anise
Zest of one orange
Put all ingredients into slow cooker and put on low until mixture starts to simmer.
Once simmering, put slow cooker on keep warm or lowest setting. If wine becomes too cool, put slow cooker back on low setting. DO NOT LET WINE BOIL!!! You will be cooking off the alcohol, and at that point… just toss it out the window.
