Mulled wine is a traditional Christmas drink in many parts of Europe. It is made by heating red wine and spices such as cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. Mulled wine was first mentioned in a cookbook from 1554, but it is thought to have been around for much longer.
Mulled wine recipes vary from country to country. In Germany, for example, the wine is often spiked with a little bit of rum or brandy. In Sweden, mulled wine is made with apple cider instead of red wine.
No matter what the ingredients, mulled wine is always a warming and delicious drink to enjoy during the cold winter months.
Making mulled wine is a great way to warm up on those cold winter nights! To make mulled wine, start by combining a bottle of red wine, 1/3 cup of sugar, and 1/2 cup of water in a saucepan. Heat the mixture over low heat until the sugar has dissolved. Add in the spices of your choice, like cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice, and allow the mixture to simmer for 10 minutes. Finally, add in a few oranges or apples for a sweet and tangy flavor. Enjoy your mulled wine hot or cold!
