Winter Spice Mulled Wine

Happiest of holidays to all you wonderful people! We hope you have the most magical day, and maybe even find some Arran Street East under the tree.

To help make your day even better, here's a recipe for the perfect mulled wine, from our favourite foodie Aoife McElwain.

Winter Spice Mulled Wine

This simple mulled wine recipe is best made with a decent bottle of wine. The better the wine, the tastier the mulled wine! Full-bodied and bold wines like Syrah and Malbec are perfect for this seasonally spiced drink.

You'll need:

1 bottle of decent red wine
2 cinnamon sticks
4 star anise
4 cloves
2 oranges, sliced
1 lemon, sliced
100g of brown sugar

Method

1. Place all the ingredients into a large saucepan or pot. Bring to a simmer but don't boil. Simmer for about 10 to 15 minutes.

2. To serve, pour the mulled wine into Arran Street East beakers. Add a slice of orange to the beaker and enjoy warm.
