Ingredients:

2/3 cup of raw cane sugar or white sugar
Juice and peel of one small lemon
2 cardamon pods

Directions:
Directions:
Put everything in a heavy bottomed pan. Stir to melt the sugar. Heat the mixture over low heat, and leave for about an hour - it should never boil, just sort of seethe.

Serve in small mugs (straining out the peel and spices), with optional shot of brandy, kirsch or other liqueur.
Notes: Increase the amount proportionately to serve more people. Vary the sweetener to change the taste - honey is interesting, as is dark brown sugar or molasses.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
A favorite at Germany's Christkindlmarkts, this is excellent to warm you and your guests in the winter. No need to splurge on something expensive, but it should be drinkable - just use whatever red wine is on sale!
