Making Mulled Wine couldn’t be easier. This warm inviting holiday cocktail will be a fruity and festival addition to your holiday celebration.
Combine a bottle of red with some orange slices, spices, honey, and brandy, and let it simmer for 10 minutes- THAT’S IT!!!!
1 (750-ml.) bottle red wine
1 orange, sliced into rounds, plus more for garnish
6 whole cloves
3 cinnamon sticks, plus more for garnish
3 star anise
1/4 c. honey
1/2 c. brandy
We like using dry varietals like merlot, malbec, or cab sauv. But really, any kind that you like should work! If you don’t like brandy, or don’t want to buy a bottle, skip it.
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine all ingredients. Bring to a simmer not a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer gently over low heat for 10 minutes.
Serve warm and garnish with more citrus slices and cinnamon sticks.
