How to Make Mulled Wine


Fill your home with the wonderful smells of Christmas. This mulled wine recipe is easy to make and absolutely delicious.

For a non-alcoholic version, use cranberry juice or apple juice or blackcurrant juice instead. You can also play around with the spices. I've gone for the classics such as cinnamon and cloves, but have added a little extra touch with hibiscus and ginger. 

Wishing you a wonderful and safe holiday!


- 750ml red wine
- 4 tablespoons caster sugar
- 2 large oranges, one sliced and the other juiced
- 1 whole cinnamon stick
- 3 star anise
- 5 green cardamom pods
- 15 whole cloves
- 1 tablespoon dried hibiscus flowers
- fresh ginger, sliced

Pour about 250ml of wine into a saucepan and add the sugar, along with the orange juice, orange slices and all the spices. Bring to a boil and allow to cook for 10 minutes. Add the rest of the wine and heat for a further 5 minutes. Take off the heat and allow to cool slightly before serving. Use a ladle to pour the wine into glasses and garnish the drinks with an orange slice, a star anise and/or cinnamon stick.
