Mulled Wine

Mulled Wine

21st Jun 2018

Hot mulled wine to spice up a winter's night. Delicious.


1 bottle of red wine (I use shiraz)

A slug of liquer eg. triple sec, nice and citrusy (optional - I just used this as there was some leftover from our frozen margarita phase last summer)

A few orange slices

6 star anise pods

2 cinnamon sticks

5 cloves

2 Tbsp sugar 


Heat in a saucepan to a low simmer then serve hot. 

You can also add a handful of raisins and slivered almonds, they soak up the wine and you can eat them with a spoon when your cup is empty.

Note: This is also a great way to use a wine that isn't quite as nice as you expected.
