This drink was super popular back when Dickens was dreaming up Scrooge. We’re not sure why it fell out of favor. Maybe Ebenezer stole all the oranges and hid all the cloves. Anyway not only is this drink delicious, it makes the house smell wonderful.
- 1 750-milliliter bottle of port
- 2 small oranges
- about 20 whole cloves
Stud the oranges with cloves and roast at 375 degrees until brown. Let cool slightly, the quarter. A serrated knife will help you cut through the skins better. Place the studded orange slices in a pot big enough to hold the port. Pour in the port and bring to a simmer over low heat.
