Preparation

  1. Roll the pomegranates on a countertop to soften. Halve them crosswise and hold them, cut side down, over a medium saucepan, hitting the backsides until all the seeds have been released. Add the lime juice, brown sugar, rum, 10 pieces of star anise, cinnamon, mulling spices and 3 of the sliced figs. Bring to a boil and simmer 7 minutes. Add the wine and let it rest, covered, 10 minutes. Serve warm, strained or not, in small mugs garnished with a fig slice and a piece of star anise.
