Mulled Wine

mulled wine recipe with step by step pictures

Mulled wine is my favorite fall and winter drink.

It’s hot and sweet and it possesses a very special power – it makes both your limbs and your soul beautifully warm.

 

I got this recipe from my beloved Mom. It’s traditional in our family, it’s simple, it’s fragrant and it’s beyond delicious.

If you’ve never tried it before, you definitely need to.

It’ll make you happy!

These are the ingredients posing again just for you.

The water couldn’t make it to the picture ’cause it’s just too slow.

(Oh, yes, I am drinking the wine when writing this… how could you guess that?)

Cinnamon.

I love cinnamon.

Cinnamon is the spice of my life.

1. To make your own mulled wine, pour the wine into a medium saucepan.

3. Add the lemon juice, sugar and spices.

4. Place the saucepan over low heat.

5. Let it simmer, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes.

This mixture shouldn’t be boiling – that would make the alcohol evaporate. And, gee, that is the last thing in the world we want, right?

6. Remove from heat and strain into a large jug (or just remove the spices).

7. Serve in glasses while still warm.
And most importantly – enjoy, dear friends!

    Have you tried it with white wine? My family loves moscato, but something makes me think cloves and white wine aren’t a great combo.

    The wind kind of looks like Cola. Even though I have never drunk wine before and am not planning on drinking it, I have to admit it looks delicious.

    “Beyond delicious”, the words are totally enticing. I’ll probably try this within these days. Kind of curious how it tastes like, heatened wine with sugar and spices? Hmmm…

    Hello!
    I do the same recipe but I put orange slices instead of lemon. It’s such a lovely drink. There’s something very comforting about its smell.
    Have you tried with cider instead of red wine? Yummy too!

    My comment is long overdue but I just saw this post on the sidebar! I had never heard of this until I moved to France and I am looking forward to my first tastes of it come closer to winter. Even better, though, I can no make my own version with this recipe!!

    This has been my favorite winter drink for years. Orange slices are definitely a great addition (I actually never made it without them). Also, this year, I improved my version by adding a handful of raw almonds and used (spiced) honey (just a couple spoonfuls) instead of sugar. The almonds add a nice touch, I felt + made a good snack afterwards. Na zdravie!
