1 Bottle red wine

2 Cups apple cider

Make a sachet with the cheese cloth and cinnamon, cloves and anise.  Tie tightly with twine.

I think of Sangria fondly as a drink to be sipped during the hot summer months.  If you add brandy, spices and apple cider then it is definitely a winter drink.  Cheers!
