Mulled Wine

Ingredients to make Mulled Wine

  • 2 Clementine Oranges
  • 2 lemons
  • 200 gms castor sugar
  • 1 bottle of port or claret red wine
  • 1 vanilla pod, halved lengthways
  • 6 cloves
  • 2 barks of cinnamon
  • 1 nutmeg
  • 4 bay leaves
  • 2 star anise

How to make Mulled Wine

  1. In a saucepan, heat castor sugar over medium heat. Add large sections of peel of clementine oranges and lemons and then add the juice of both oranges and lemons.
  2. Add cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg (12-14 gratings) & bay leaves. Throw in your halved vanilla pod & add red wine just enough to cover the sugar. Bring it to a boil & keep the wine on a rolling boil for 5 minutes, until you’ve got a thick syrup.
  3. Lower the heat, add star anise and the rest of the wine and after 5 minutes, turn off the gas. Serve it warm in glasses and serve. Garnish with whole cinnamon sticks and star anise. You could also add a wedge of citrus studded with cloves.

My Tip:

The reason for adding a small amount of wine is to let the sugar and the spices infuse and provide a gobsmacking base to the wine. If a syrup is not created at first and if you add the entire bottle of wine, you’ll end up burning off the alcohol content of it.
