Spiced Mulled Wine

Add some spice to your traditional mulled wine recipe

Ingredients


  • wine mix:
  • 1 bottle of red wine (a big, full-on red, full of berry fruits. something like an australian, californian or new zealand shiraz – either way it doesn’t need to cost too much)
  • 120g sugar
  • mulled spice mix:
  • 3 cloves,
  • ½ tsp ginger powder,
  • ¼ tsp grated nutmeg,
  • ¼ tsp mace,
  • ½ tsp cinnamon (all ground)
  • 1 dash of crème de cassis (optional)
  • paired orange and lemon zest, cut into thin strips (optional)

Method

  1. Pour your chosen bottle of wine, sugar and the Mulled Spices into a thick bottomed saucepan
  2. Place the pan onto a gentle heat, stir and heat for a few minutes until the aromas send tingles down your spine and the wine is warm to the touch.
  3. DON’T ALLOW IT TO BOIL AS YOU’LL ONLY END UP LOSING THE ALCOHOL!
  4. Add the Crème de Cassis, orange and lemon zest-strips (if using) and stir again.
  5. Take off the heat, strain through a sieve into a suitable serving jug.
  6. Serve, drink, enjoy and sláinte!
  7. For pure, warming indulgence you can also add a dash or two of brandy and port, to help you through these cold nights.

Notes:

For the wine, you need a big, full-on red, full of berry fruits. Something like an Australian, Californian or New Zealand Shiraz. Either way, it doesn’t need to cost too much.
