A traditional drink enjoyed at Dutch parties and celebrations.
First, wash the raisins in lukewarm water and drain. Heat 250 ml of water in a saucepan, pour in the sugar and bring to the boil, stirring constantly. Next, add the raisins and the cinnamon stick, stir and leave to simmer over a gentle heat until the raisins are nice and soft. Then, scoop out the raisins and place them in clean jam jars. Reduce the remaining liquid still further and pour into the jars. Finally, pour in the brandewijn and seal the jars so that they are airtight. Store the jars in your basement or pantry, preferably for 3 months, to allow the flavours to infuse.
