Jack and Siobahn's Glogg

1 - 26 oz. bottle of red wine (quality is not an issue)
1 cup brandy
1 - 12 oz. bottle of beer
1 orange, thinly sliced with rind on
1 lemon, thinly sliced with rind on
3/4 cup sugar
3 cinnamon sticks
1 tbsp. whole cloves
1 cup raisins
1/3 cup slivered almonds

Make a bag with cinnamon and cloves(we just put them in loose and then skimmed off the cloves near serving time).
Combine everything in large pot; bring to a boil; simmer for 1.5 hours covered (perfect to put in early and put on low heat in a crock pot).
Remove orange and lemon slices and spice bag before serving.

Makes about 10 - 6 oz. servings
