Mulled Wine Recipe
There’s nothing quite like the feeling of a hot mulled wine in the middle of winter.
Here is our favourite mulled wine recipe this winter:
- 1/2 cup raw sugar
- 8 whole dried cloves
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 6 dried whole allspice
- 2 star anise
- 2 bottles red wine (shiraz or merlot are best)
- 3 oranges, washed
- To make the syrup to flavour the pot of wine: Add sugar and 2 cups of wine to a small pot, add all the spices and bring to a simmer.
- Simmer the syrup for about 20 minutes until the syrup has reduced by a quarter or until it is a thicker texture.
- Slice the oranges into even slices.
- Pour the remaining wine into a larger pot, add the sliced oranges, and reduced syrup with spices.
- Bring the pot slowly to heat, just below simmering point. Turn off and let it sit for 5 minutes before serving into mugs or glasses.
- Pour into 6 of our Smoke Gold Dipped Wine Glasses and enjoy!
