In the winter, mulled wine is the best comfort drink ever. Do you agree with me? I don’t really drink alcohol, but in the winter, I like to drink a cup of warm mulled wine. It has such a gorgeous flavor, with all those spices. I’m sure that you will love it too.
- 1 L of your favorite red wine
- 3 tablespoons of brown vanilla sugar
- 1 stick of cinnamon
- 4 cloves
- 3 star anise
- 2 slices of orange
- 1/4 a teaspoon of ground nutmeg
Pour all the ingredients into a medium-size saucepan. Simmer the wine on medium-low heat for 15 minutes minimum, but you can simmer it longer if you want. Don’t boil the wine, because that way, the alcohol will evaporate. Simmer it on low heat to heat it up and so that the spices will melt in a wonderful scent.
You can add other spices if you want, or you can take out only what you don’t like. However you make it, it will surely be delicious. It’s a comforting drink for those cold nights when you are under a warm blanket. You can also put all the spices into a cheesecloth and take them out when you turn off the heat.
