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.
