Hot Spiced Grape Juice

While at Betsy's house during the week of  Halloween, we made this drink with juice from mystery grapes grown in my garden and bottled in my kitchen this summer. On colder winter days I've made it at home, too. Warmed like this, it is much like hot apple cider but a bit more rich.

Dilute home made grape juice with 1 quart water. Stir it (or whichever kind you are using) together with other ingredients in a pot and bring to a simmer on the stove-top or in a slow-cooker. Turn off heat and let steep for at least 20 minutes before serving in mugs.
