For many years, I’ve believed that any lunch or dinner without a good dessert is a simple, incomplete meal. Creating a dessert to share with your loved ones is the best way to surprise your family and guests and wrap up a good meal. This is a tropical, simple and classic dessert that’s just delicious. Colorful and light. This oranges in red wine recipe is the perfect excuse to use that wine that was left over from parties or celebrations. And, as my father always says: “For my family, the best.” Therefore, it’s definitely worth using a certain quality of wine with body, as it’s the sauce in which we will prepare and eat the food. This dessert has a pretty innovative appearance, but it’s very easy to make. You will impress your guests. MORE + LESS -

  • 1
    Prepare syrup. In a pot over high heat, place the two cups of wine, lemon and orange peels, cloves, cinnamon and the brown sugar.
  • 2
    Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer for about 30 minutes until the wine is reduced by one third.
  • 3
    Strain the liquid and refrigerate. Once it’s well chilled, check if consistency is too thin or too thick. More liquid consistency is preferred but if desired, try for it to be like honey.
  • 4
    Peel the oranges and carefully slice along the sides of each segment with a knife, trying to remove all the pith.
  • 5
    Place each orange on a plate and pour the syrup in the center of the plate and over the oranges. Garnish with cherries or mint leaves.
  • If, after checking the syrup’s density, you find it is too liquid, return it to the heat for a few minutes to give it a perfect touch. If, on the other hand, it is too dense, add a little water.
  • Another way to make the syrup is to leave the two cups of wine in a glass container along with the cinnamon stick overnight. If you do it this way, you won’t have to boil the wine. Your dessert will have a better aroma.
