1 bottle dry red wine

1 cup gin

1 cup cognac

1 cup sugar

1 whole lemon

1 whole orange

½ cup fresh lemon juice

½ cup fresh orange juice

3 cinnamon sticks

Combine the wine, gin, cognac and sugar in a pitcher and stir to dissolve sugar. Cut the peel including the white pith off the lemon and orange exposing the flesh. Cut the flesh into ¼-inch dice. Discard seeds. Stir the diced fruit, fruit juices and cinnamon sticks into the wine mixture. Taste for sweetness and add more sugar to taste. Best if chilled for an hour or so before serving.
