- 1 Tsp Ground Cinnamon
- 1 Tsp Ground Ginger
- 1 Tsp Ground Nutmeg
- 50g Brown Sugar
- 1 Cinnamon Stick

In a small bowl, combine your Ground Cinnamon, Ground Ginger, Ground Nutmeg, Brown Sugar and Cloves and stir together.

Now simply present this wonderful gift to friends and family with the instructions: Empty the contents of the bag into a saucepan and pour in the Wine. Simmer for 5 minutes on a medium heat, then serve and enjoy.
