How to make Mulled Wine

mulled wine mulled wine
  • You will need:

  • 1 (750 ml) bottle of red wine

  • 1 orange, sliced into thin circles

  • 1/4 cup brandy (optional)

  • 1/4 cup honey or sugar

  • 8 whole cloves

  • 2 cinnamon sticks

  • 2 star anise

  • Garnishes: citrus slices (orange and/or lemon), extra cinnamon sticks, extra star anise

  • Instructions:

  • Put all ingredients in a non-aluminum saucepan, and bring the mixture to a simmer (over medium-high heat).

  • Be careful not to boil! Or else you could accidentally boil out the alcohol.

  • Once the mixture is at a simmer, reduce the heat to medium-low (remember, to prevent boiling), and let sit over heat for a minimum of 15-20 minutes.

  • Some mulled wines will simmer over heat for a couple of hours to allow the flavors to really bloom, but that is at your discretion. You technically only need 15-20 minutes.

  • Once the mixture is finished on the stove, strain it.

  • Add whatever garnishes you choose, and now it\'s ready to be served!
