Delicious Mulled Wine

The festive season calls for festive drinks” and there’s no better festive drink than Mulled Wine. Now there are a few simple ways you can enjoy this festive drink. In this Bevvy of the Week post I’ve included the three methods I know. The first method involves making your own from scratch. The recipe I’ve included is a very simple but delicious recipe.

The Life of Stuff - Bevvy of the Week - Mulled Wine

METHOD ONE – The Recipe

  • Pick up a cheap bottle of red wine, nothing too strong.
  • One peeled and sliced orange (keep peel to add a bit of zest)
  • 1/4 cup of brandy
  • 8-10 cloves
  • 1/3 cup of honey or sugar
  • 3 cinnamon sticks
  • 2 tsp of allspice

Put all of the above into a large pot, stir occasionally and gently warm for around 20 to 25 min, don’t boil and you are ready to go.

METHOD TWO – Use Pre-made Spices

Buy a packet of Mulled Wine Spices and follow what it says on the box. Nice and handy.

METHOD THREE – Buy a Bottle

Buy a bottle of mulled wine, heat it up and off you go.

Cheers, sláinte,
