  1. Place the sugar, tea bags, lemon slices, cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and water into a saucepan, and stir until the sugar has dissolved. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let mixture cool. Strain out and discard the spices, lemon, and tea bags. Watch Now
  2. Pour the white wine into a large jar or covered container, and mix with the tea mixture. Stir in apples and cranberries; mix in the apple brandy. Chill in refrigerator 24 to 48 hours. Serve cold. Watch Now

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • I have made a kid-friendly version of this using white grape juice in place of the wine and a 1/4 cup of apple juice as the "kick!"
