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
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!
