PI's 25 Steps to Christmas - Step Five: Mulled Wine Recipe

What's better than a lovely hot glass of mulled wine on a chilly winter evening? ...No we can't think of anything either.

A guaranteed spirit raiser, mulled wine is a delicious seasonal treat which has been a Christmas tradition for hundreds of years. There are many different takes on this classic drink but here is our favourite recipe: 

You will need:
One bottle of red wine
One glass of brandy
One peeled and sliced orange
8-10 cloves
3 cinnamon sticks
1/3 cup of sugar


Combine all the ingredients in a large pot and gently warm the ingredients on low to medium heat for 20-25 minutes. Stir occasionally to make sure that the sugar has completely dissolved and avoid boiling. When the wine is steaming and all the ingredients have been well blended, it is ready to serve. 

Cheers to you and your very own home-made mulled wine!
