Mulled wine is a Christmas must-do! This simple drink combines red wine with various fruits and spices - simmered over a stove to blend the flavours together.
While there are endless combinations of spices and ingredients, in general, you can't go wrong with red wine, star anise, orange and/or lemon, cinnamon sticks, and cloves. If you have it on hand, consider adding apple cider, brandy, cardamom, nutmeg, vanilla pod, maple syrup, or honey!
Red wine (we like Nostrada Garnacha!)
Whole spices: 1 cinnamon stick, 5 whole cloves
Combine all ingredients in a pot on the stove. Heat slowly until thoroughly hot and serve in festive glasses!
