  • Summary

    WHAT: White wine infused with cardamom and star anise, as well as the more traditional triumvirate of cinnamon, ginger, and cloves, and amped up with pear brandy. HOW: A slice of Asian pear is added to each drink as a garnish—the pear softens slightly as it absorbs the warm booze and makes for a yummy treat once you've sipped the last of the wine. WHY WE LOVE IT: Like a delicate warm sangria, this drink is the perfect accompaniment to a cozy evening indoors.

    Ingredients

    • One 750-ml bottle dry or off-dry white wine, preferably Riesling or Grüner Veltliner
    • 1 piece star anise
    • Two 1/4-inch-thick slices fresh ginger
    • 3 green cardamom pods
    • 3 whole cloves
    • 3 to 4 tablespoons honey, or to taste
    • 1/4 cup pear brandy, such as Poire Williams
    • 4 slices Asian pear
