A Few Festive Tipples And Making A Great Mulled Wine

Yesterday I shared my recipe for Mulled Juice, which is a perfect everyday winters drink and great to have on the go for drivers. Today I want to share how to make homemade mulled wine.

At first I thought it would me an idea to use the ready-made spice sachet’s, but I could not get them for love nor money. Everywhere was sold out.

So my recipe for Mulled Wine is from scratch, no packets. Perfect to have simmering in a pan or slow cooker when guests visit.

For Mulled Wine you will need

A good bottle red wine (I used Merlot)

2 cinnamon sticks

5 star anise

5 cloves

2 orange, sliced

lemon, sliced

100g brown sugar

Put all the ingredients in a pan and simmer on low for 8-10 minutes. Do not let it boil, and keep stirring. Then keep at a low heat to serve. Alternatively you can cook it in a slow cooker for 1-2 hours on low.

  1. You are on a roll with your festive drinks Sarah. It will be the sulphites in the wine that gives you a headache. I suffer with migraines and have to be careful with wine. But this looks so good and easy to make x
