Cranberry sauce with red wine

My favorite components of the Thanksgiving meal are stuffing and cranberry sauce. Really, I could just pair those two and replace all other components with the combo. This amazing cranberry sauce reminds me of the flavors of Hungarian mulled red wine. The comforting flavors of a cold winter's eve spent by the fire.

0.75 cup red wine
0.5 cup sugar
1 cinnamon stick
12 oz fresh cranberries
zest of an orange

Combine the cranberries and the sugar in a small pot. Add in the wine and the cinnamon stick.

Bring to a boil and simmer over medium heat until cranberries are soft and the sauce is near its desired thickness. Stir in the orange zest and cook for another minute. Serve!
