Celebrate the festive season in style with some homemade mulled wine – perfect to share on a cold winters evening and it leaves a Christmassy aroma in the kitchen!
100ml orange juice
100g dark muscovado sugar
1 cinnamon stick
1/2 an orange, sliced
1 bottle of red wine
Place a saucepan on a low/moderate heat and slowly mix the orange juice and sugar together. Once they have mixed together add the cinnamon stick and sliced orange and leave on a moderate temperature for about 10 minutes.
Now the important part – adding one bottle of red wine. This doesn’t have to be expensive and is open to grape varieties. I often use supermarket’s own wine brands and tend to go for a Cabernet Sauvignon.
Once the wine has been added, leave to heat up on a moderate heat and serve warm.
