Mulled Wine

Nothing says Happy Holidays like a steaming glass of mulled wine… or a teacup. This recipe is extremely easy to follow, and the whole process only takes about 10 minutes.

All you need are:

  • 1 bottle of a dry red wine (750 mL)
  • 2 tablespoons of brown sugar
  • 5 or 6 star anise, whole
  • 1 to 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 1/4 teaspoon of ground cloves
  • 1 orange or lemon peel

Pop open your bottle of wine and pour it into a pot on low to medium-low heat. Add the brown sugar, star anise, cinnamon sticks, cloves, and citrus peel and simmer on low heat for about five to ten minutes. Careful not to boil the mixture.

You can let the wine simmer for longer if you’d like a strong flavour. Serve hot.

If you need to make a bigger batch, careful not to add too many star anise to the pot – star anise has a strong flavour that can overpower. You only need an extra one or two per additional bottle of wine.

This recipe serves 4.

Happy Holidays!

  1. @Musketnuss. Thank you for your comment and idea! Most people tend to use red wine, which is also our favourite. That said, there are different varieties of mulled wine, and we have read that there is a variety that uses a white wine base.

    We’ll try a version with white wine and will post a modified recipe when we have it.

    Happy Holidays!
