RECIPE: Hair of the Camel That Bit You

  • 750 ml red wine of your choice
  • 1/4 c granulated sugar
  • 1 orange
  • 10 whole cloves
  • 4 cinnamon sticks
  • 3 star anise pods
  • 1 cup fresh orange juice
  • 4 cardamom pods
  • 5 oz Goldschlager

Dump red wine into a large pot or slow cooker over low heat. Add sugar, orange slices, orange juice, and spices – you can stick the cloves into the orange slices to make them easier to retrieve.  Simmer for a minimum of 30 minutes but longer is better.  Stir occasionally.  Serve while still hot in a mug, with 1 oz of goldschlager per serving. 

This recipe has a lot of room for customization.  You can substitute a few teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice for the whole spices, if you would prefer.  I would recommend putting ground spices in a tea bag before adding them to the wine, so your drink isn’t gritty.  Not sweet enough? Add more sugar. Not complex enough? Add peppercorns, ginger, juniper berries, bay leaves, a vanilla pod… even a little chili pepper can be yummy!

Episode 004 – The Hair of the Camel

Episode Notes

In this episode, we investigate the legend of The Red Ghost, a demonic beast that terrorized the American Southwest in the late 19th century. From there, things get tangential as we discuss camelcide, ghost miner role-call, and how to properly cook your wine.

*Technical Note: Again, we had some serious audio problems on Nick’s side during the recording of some segments, and we apologize. We guarantee that problem has been totally ironed out for future episodes. (Guarantee does not extend to future technical problems. Void where prohibited.)
