Recipe: Mulled Wine

An easy mulled wine recipe for the festive season, brimming with Christmassy spice. Don’t bother with expensive wine – a cheap red will work beautifully and no one will ever know the difference! Eat, Drink and be merry! 


Ingredients for 4- 6 servings
1 bottle dry red wine
2 (5cm) cinnamon sticks
1 dessertspoon whole cloves
1 dessertspoon whole allspice
1 large piece orange rind (avoid the pith) 1 large piece lemon rind (avoid the pith) 2-4 tablespoons demerara sugar


1. Pour the wine into a heavy saucepan over medium heat, and add the cinnamon, cloves, allspice, lemon rind and orange rind. Heat gently, but don’t bring to the boil. Stir in 2 tablespoons of the sugar, and once dissolved, taste to see if you’d like the wine sweeter and add more if so (take care not to burn your mouth as this will be hot!).

2. Keep hot on medium to low heat for 20 minutes to let the flavours infuse the wine.

3. Strain your mulled wine into heatproof glasses or mugs and serve at once, perhaps accompanied by mince pies or just enjoy by the fireside.
