Total Time 10 minutes


  • In a small saucepan, combine grape juice, sugar and 1 cup of wine; bring to a boil. A watched pot never boils so ya might as well take a few swigs of wine while you wait, right? You're just passing the time.
  • Add cranberries and cook for 30 seconds. When they begin to pop, they're ready.
  • Strain cranberries, reserving the wine syrup.
  • Add rosemary to hot syrup and set aside to steep.
  • In a pitcher, combine remaining wine, blanched cranberries, and apples. It's best to chop the apples right before this step.
  • Chill in the refrigerator for at least an hour, then add cooled wine syrup.
  • Garnish with candied rosemary and serve. Now this is how you celebrate Christmas!
