Cocktail Hour: Mulled Wine

Apparently, some of you don't like rum. Which is shocking. All of our warm cocktails have all been rum-based so far. This classic mulled wine recipe is perfect. And if you don't like wine either, well then you're probably reading the wrong blog. Yes, you can always use one of those mulled wine sachets, but it's so easy to make yourself that you really should give it a try.

You'll need these things:

  • Two bottles of red wine. Some people argue that the better the wine the better the mulled wine, but honestly, as long as you spend over a fiver you'll be fine. You should always spend over a fiver on a bottle of wine.
  • 2 oranges, sliced
  • 2 lemons, sliced
  • Cloves - about half a handful should do it
  • 2 cinnamon sticks

Make it!

Heat everything on a low heat until warm. Don't boil the wine - you'll burn off the alcohol and then be left with a very rubbish Ribena. You don't want that. Pour into glasses. Best served outside with a cold nose whilst wearing gloves.

  1. Have you seen the cold fizzy 'mulled wine' at M&S? Good way into the world of mulled wine if you're not a fan of the hot stuff :)

  2. I'd also pour in a good swig of brandy, or cherry brandy if you want it extra fruity. ;)

  3. Brandy would taste fab in this. it'd be a lot like warm sangria and that can only be a good thing!

    Amy, we're onto this cold and white mulled wine stuff - not buying it though. We want to make our own. Because honestly, we're not convinced it's a good idea. We'll try it later this week and report back!
