Mulled Wine

15 Jan

This my mums’ recipe for mulled wine. It is a family tradition to drink this at Christmas time but since I’ve been back home and the weather has taken a turn for the worse a steaming glass of this stuff really does warm you up. It is also a great thing to make if you have an undrinkable bottle of red or two.

* 1 bottle robust red wine
* 1-2 sticks cinnamon
* 6 cloves
* peel and juice of one orange
* 2 glasses water
* 1/2 glass sugar

Put all the ingredients into a pan, except the red wine, and bring to the boil. Boil rapidly for 10 minutes or thereabouts to make an aromatic syrup. Pour in the wine and as soon as it is warmed through remove from the heat. If you let the wine boil it will start to evaporate the alcohol. Decant through a strainer into a heat poof jug and serve.
