It’s safe to say Winter has well and truly hit Victoria this week! The beanies are out and our warm socks are on! Friday nights are the perfect excuse to open a bottle of wine in our house and so for this weeks knock off drinks we’re embracing the cold with some delicious mulled wine! This recipe is super simple to make and will have you warmed up from the inside out in no time!
- 1 bottle of red wine
- 2/3 cup of sugar. At first I thought it was a bit sweet so I considered using a bit less, but then the sweetness grew on me. Your call!
- peel of one lemon
- peel of one orange
- 1/2 cup orange juice
- 7 cloves
- 2 star anise
- 1 cinnamon stick
- a generous sprinkling of nutmeg
Place all the ingredients into a saucepan except the wine. Cook, stirring for a few minutes until the sugar has dissolved. Leave to simmer for 5 minutes or until your house is smelling amazing.
Add the rest of the wine and simmer for another 5 minutes or so.
Pour through a strainer into glasses and add your garnish of choice.
Get set up on the couch and snuggle in!
