Mulled Wine


Mulled wine is a great post dinner beverage to enjoy over the holidays. The various spices meddle together to create a smooth and warming drink, perfect for sipping on during chilly winter nights.


Ingredients: 1 bottle of red wine (I used cabernet sauvignon), 3 star anise, 6 whole cloves, 3 whole allspice, 1 orange (zest and juice), 1/3 cup brandy, 2 large cinnamon sticks, 1/2 cup sugar, 1 vanilla bean with seeds removed.


Instructions: Add all of the ingredients to a large pot and bring to a boil. Lower heat to medium high and simmer for at least 15 minutes. To make it more festive garnish, with cinnamon, star anise, and orange.
