250g vanilla sugar
1 vanilla pod
2 cinnamon sticks
1) Peel the skin off one orange and cut the other orange in slices.
2) Combine the sliced orange, orange skin and all other ingredients together in a big pan. Heat gently so that the sugar dissolves.
3) When the sugar is completely dissolved, let the wine cool down and place it in a cool, dark, dry place to rest.
4) After a week, strain all the spices and fruits out, heat up the wine and serve it in a warm mug.
