Around New Year's, I make this sometimes, as our family is not really big fans of alcohol of any kind, let alone red wine. My sister likes it, so when she is there, she lives in China with her husband, I make it. It's a fairly simple recipe to make, but tastes really good.

1/4 L water
1/2 cinnamon stick
4 whole cloves
1 piece lemon peel
60-80 g sugar (to taste)
1/2 L red wine (your favourite)

Add the spices to the water in a saucepan and bring to boil on high heat; boil for 5 minutes. Add the sugar and stir to dissolve. Reduce the heat to medium and add the red wine; bring back up to almost boiling. Take off the heat and remove the spices. Add to glasses. You can put a slice of lemon in each glass.

Optional: Leave the water out, upping the amount of red wine to 3/4 L.
