Mulled Spiced Wine

Do you need a warm drink for a cold night? The spices and wine each have a natural warming sensation to the body and the aromas will relax you.

Mulled wine is a wonderful way to warm up on a cold night. My husband and I frequently make this during the cold months and sit by the fire to warm ourselves. Cinnamon, cloves and ginger each create a natural warming sensation to the body.

Mulled wine is the predecessor to the Hot Toddy and was used as a treatment for colds in Victorian England.

Make this delicious beverage the next time you are feeling a bit of a chill in the air and enjoy the aromas it gives off.

 

Spiced Mulled Wine

  • 2 bottles of very sweet red wine
  • 1/4 – 1/2 cup honey or sugar
  • 8-10 cloves
  • 2 stars anise
  • 3 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 tsp fresh or 2 tsp ground ginger (allspice can be substituted)
  • Sliced oranges as a garnish
  1. Using a small amount of cheese cloth, add all spices in cheesecloth and tie a knot.
  2. In a saucepan, add wine and spice bouquet and heat on very low heat for 20-25 minutes. Avoid boiling the wine.
  3. Stir occasionally to make sure that the honey or sugar has completely dissolved. When the wine is steaming and the ingredients have been well blended it is ready to serve.
  4. Remove spice bouquet and ladle the mulled wine into mugs. Serve hot and garnish with a slice of orange or cranberry.
