Happy Holidays! Try My Classic English Mulled Wine

It just wouldn’t be the holidays without classic English mulled wine. Being English myself, I think it’s in my blood to love the stuff. It’s a perfect way to use up those bottles of cheap red wine that you might’ve been given as a gift, and fills your entire house with the smell of Christmas (just like these pomanders, which would be so fun to make while sipping this mulled wine!).

The great thing about this recipe is that you can kind of improvise. Many mulled wine recipes call for lemon but I personally prefer it without, so I kept my version super simple. Read below for how to make it!

Ingredients:

Yields 12 glasses

2 bottles of cheap red wine
1 orange
3/4 cup brown sugar
4 cloves
2 cinnamon sticks
Pinch of powdered ginger
2 tablespoons Cointreau or brandy
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Steps:
1) Pour the wine into a large pot and put over low heat
2) Peel thin slivers of orange rind, and cut the orange in half. Spear 1 half of the orange with 4 cloves, and retain the other half for later.
3) Add the rind, a squeeze of orange juice and 1/2 orange with cloves into the pot of wine.
4) Add the rest of the ingredients and simmer on low for about an hour and a half.
5) Mulled wine should be served hot in glass goblets or tumblers – when pouring hot liquid into glasses, make sure to place a silver spoon in the cup before pouring to conduct away some of the heat and prevent your glasses from cracking! Garnish with cinnamon sticks and orange rind.

    Thank you for sharing the recipe and the tip about the spoon.
    Is there an alternative to the silver spoon? I donn’t believe I own one. 🙂

    Yey – Louise, this recipe looks great. As I’m in Australia, we’ll be having this on Christmas Eve with our Air Con on! Might have to try for a Christmas in July celebration as well!
