              Method

            1. In a large pan, mix together the sugar and tea. Add the lemon juice, orange juice, cloves and cinnamon stick. Stir until the sugar dissolves completely.
            2. Add the red wine. Heat the mixture until it just comes to the boil, then turn the heat off. Let it sit to infuse for 30 minutes.
            3. When you’re ready to serve, gently heat the rum in a separate pan, being careful not to let it boil. When hot, add to the tea and wine mixture.
            4. Remove the cloves and cinnamon stick. Pour the punch into mugs, and serve it hot with fresh lemon and orange slices.
