Folks make this centuries-old punch in many ways - some use ale, while others add savory herbs.
The name comes from a toast meaning "Be Well."
Put the fruit and wine in a saucepan and heat over low flame until starting to steam (DO NOT BOIL)
Put the sugar and spices in a disposable paper coffee filter.
Tie with string and add to the wine.
Allow to steep for 15 minutes.
