  • Bring the water, sugar, fruits and spices to a boil in a medium sized pot.
  • Let simmer for 5 minutes until all sugar is dissolved.
  • Add the wine and brandy to the pot and continue cooking (but do not boil the drink) until it is hot. (if you boil the drink, the alcohol will be gone and it will be just a nice drink but not alcoholic).
