The perfect mulled wine in 10 easy steps

Our mulled wine recipe is for 10 people. If you’re less than 10, well you’re absolutely not old enough kid… Also, if red wine isn’t your thing, a good substitute is apple-juice. But don’t add any sugar in that case! Back to the recipe steps:

  1. Don’t drink the wine yet
  2. Put 200g of brown sugar in a heated saucepan
  3. Add lemon peel and squeeze the 6 oranges
  4. Add the 4 cloves and the 6 cinnamon sticks
  5. Open the first bottle and refer to step 1
  6. Cover the mixture with a little bit of wine and let it all simmer for 10 minutes
  7. Once the sugar has dissolved, bring to a boil
  8. Let it boil for about 5 minutes until you get a thick syrup
  9. Turn the heat down and add the 4 star anises and the 4 spearmint branches
  10. Add the rest of the wine and let it boil for another 5 minutes

That’s it! Serve hot with Panettone

Tasty, huh?
