1/2 cup vodka
1 - 3 cinnamon sticks
1 teaspoon cardamom
At least twenty-four hours before serving, put above ingredients in container with lid. Shake well, then shake occasionally throughout day.
2 liters of wine. Sangria works well, but any sweet, fruity wine will do.
1/2 cup sugar (more or less, to taste)
Vodka mixture, with cloves and cinnamon sticks strained out.
Put everything in a large pan. Heat well, but don't boil.
Serve with raisins and sliced almonds. These should be put in individual cups before adding about 1/2 cup hot liquid.
