Delicious fruit salad with a splash of wine.
In a saucepan, combine red wine, honey, cinnamon stick, cloves, and star anise. Bring the mixture to a simmer and let it cook for 10-15 minutes until it forms a syrup. Allow the syrup to cool, then strain to remove spices. In a large bowl, combine mixed winter fruits. Drizzle the mulled wine syrup over the fruits and toss gently to coat. Garnish with orange zest and fresh mint leaves before serving.
