How to Make It
Whisk together wine and honey in a large microwave-safe bowl or glass measuring cup.
Using a Y-shaped peeler, remove 1-inch strips of zest from the orange. Add zest to wine mixture. Halve the orange, and squeeze juice into the bowl. Add star anise, allspice, cloves, peppercorns, and 2 cinnamon sticks.
Microwave on high, until hot but not boiling, 2½ to 3 minutes. Set aside to steep, 15 minutes. Stir in brandy. Strain into mugs and top with a cinnamon stick and an orange wedge or twist. Reheat individual mugs on high until hot, 30 seconds or as needed.
