Winter In A Cup: Mulled Wine

This will be a short post, but I had to get this recipe for mulled wine out there, because it is truly winter goodness in a cup. Let me set the scene for this drink... red wine, warmed, spiced, slightly sweet with a hint of citrus. So put on your favorite Christmas movie, snuggle up in a blanket next to a good friend or loved one and sip on some of this winter time goodness.


  • 1 bottle cheap red wine
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 10 cloves
  • 4 cinnamon sticks
  • slice of orange peel

1. Put all of the ingredients into a medium saucepan and heat over low heat until it simmers. 

2. Simmer on low (you don't want to cook out the alcohol) for 10 minutes, take off the heat, strain and serve warm.
