Fruit is nature’s perfect dessert. But when you want to make a simple preparation of orange segments or poached pears extra special, this zippy Spiced Wine Syrup is a wonderful, make ahead sauce. Plus, the proportions are so simple to remember (a bottle of wine, a cup of sugar, and two cinnamon sticks), that you can simmer the sauce while enjoying a weekend getaway at a cabin or beach house without consulting a recipe.
The oranges in the syrup are the perfect ending to a tapas buffet. Be sure to use a hearty Spanish red wine when you’re preparing it to end a fun evening of tapas with your friends.
