Spirit of Wives Past

This is the official cocktail from the Depot Theater’s December, 2014 production of Blithe Spirit. It’s a take on a classic mulled wine – perfect for your Christmas party.

  • 4 750 ml bottles Cabernet Savignon
  • 1/2 750 ml bottle of tawny port (we used Cockburns Fine Tawny)
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 4 cups apple cider
  • Juice from 4 oranges
  • Orange zest from 4 oranges
  • 1 lemon
  • 5 cloves
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • Grated nutmeg

Combine all the ingredients in a slower cooker and let heat on high for an hour. Reduce to low and it can be kept warm for several hours. Use a ladle to serve the wine in Irish coffee mugs. Be merry! Garnish with an orange wedge.
