  • 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • cup sugar
  • 10 whole cloves
  • 2 large cinnamon sticks
  • 1 bottle dry red wine 750 mL


  • In a saucepan over medium heat, combine blueberries and sugar. Cook until lightly simmering, about 5 minutes.
  • Puree blueberry mixture until smooth, then add in cloves and cinnamon. Continue lightly simmering for 20 minutes.
  • Pour wine into the pot and reduce heat to a very slow simmer (don’t boil), at least until wine is warm (you can let it sit on low heat anywhere from 15 minutes to 3 hours).
  • Strain before serving. Serve warm optionally garnished with a slice of orange and a cinnamon stick.
