Our New Favorite Cocktail (and Mocktail):
Adrianna Papell Hot Mulled Wine
1 large oranges
¼ cups red wine
¼ cups/10 ounces brandy
½ cup dark brown sugar
2 cinnamon sticks
6 whole cloves
Remove the peel in strips from 1 orange then juice the orange. Slice the other orange reserve for garnish.
Combine orange peel, juice and the rest of the ingredients. Stir over medium heat until the sugar dissolves. Bring mixture to a boil, then immediately reduce the heat to low. Simmer gently until flavors meld, about 30 minutes. Strain the mixture, discarding the solids. Garnish each with a reserved orange round.

Dampen the edge of the glasses and dip in sugar.

EMBRACE THE COMFORT
- This is one holiday where you’re not obligated to do anything except refresh, recharge and be with family. Getting dressed up for dinner or other at-home events should definitely be a part of the season, but it’s also fun to get lounge-y and enjoy the fact that you don’t have to go anywhere at all to celebrate.
