- Dry red wine- Spanish or Portuguese wines work well.
- Maple syrup
- Pomegranate juice
- Pear- We used an asian pear, but you can use whatever you have access to.
- Apple- We used a honeycrisp apple. Any semi-tart apple variety would work well--pink lady, Jazz, and Ambrosia apples are all similar to honeycrisps.
- Cinnamon sticks- You can usually buy cinnamon sticks in the spice aisle, but they're also on Amazon.
