Saucepan, Sieve
  • 750 ml (1 bottle) red wine
  • 60 ml (2 oz.) blackcurrant liqueur (optional)
  • 120 g (4 oz.) sugar (brown sugar, honey or maple syrup)
  • 1 orange, sliced
  • 2 cloves
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 2 star anise
  • 1 pinch of nutmeg
  • 1 slice of fresh ginger
In a saucepan

Heat the wine and sugar on medium-high heat until the sugar is completely dissolved.

When the mixture is about to come to a boil, lower the heat.*

Add the cinnamon and other spices and the liqueur.

Let the mixture infuse on low heat for 20 minutes.

Remove from heat.

Strain using a fine sieve.

Serve the drink hot in "toddy" glasses.

Decorate with an orange slice, a cinnamon stick and a star of anise.

* Although mulled wine is easy to prepare, it is important not to let the mixture boil. This will ensure the drink remains fresh-tasting and not too bitter.
