1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup hot water
1 cup apple cider (apple juice will work in a pinch!)
1 bottle of merlot (or Cabernet Sauvignon)*
cinnamon (optional)
apple slices (optional)
ice cubes

Mix honey and water.  Add apple cider and cinnamon.  Add wine and ice cubes.  Garnish with apple slices.

I’m on a boxed wine kick these days, so I usually make the honey/water/cider/cinnamon mixture and keep it in a jar in the fridge.  One bottle of wine is about four or five servings, so I eyeball about 1/4 or 1/5 of the mixture to a glass of red wine.
