Mulled wine

Mulled wine


  1. Pour one bottle of red wine into a large pan, place on the stove top and heat on a low heat making sure you don’t boil the wine. Also, be careful to make sure the pan is much larger than the gas hob, as escaping alcohol fumes from the wine can ignite outside the pan if this isn’t the case.
  2. Add in 1-2 cinnamon sticks and 1 vanilla pod
  3. Peel the orange and stud with 7-8 cloves and place the peel in the wine
  4. Add a couple of star anise pods
  5. Add sweetener (sugar/honey/agave syrup) to taste, do this slowly as it’s easy to increase sweetness, but very difficult to decrease
  6. Stir and taste constantly (the good part) until your batch is ready
  7. Ladle into mugs
  8. Decorate with red currents or cinnamon sticks
