Mulled wine, like mulled beer, is an alcoholic beverage, which most often we order (or is preparing yourself at home) in the autumn and winter. There are many different recipes how to prepare this drink. I present one of the simplest options. To prepare mulled wine at home, you need a bottle of red wine (it can be sweet, semi-sweet or dry wine), one large orange, cloves, cinnamon stick (or a teaspoon of minced) and sugar. Of course, you can slightly modified the recipe, eg. replacing sugar with honey or adding stars of anise.
- red wine (bottle – 750 ml)
- cloves (approximately 10-20 pcs.)
- cinnamon stick (or a teaspoon of minced)
- sugar (about 100-150 g)
Preparation and serving:
Orange should be thoroughly washed and cut into pieces (you can leave a few pieces that will be used later to decorate a glass or cup). Pour the wine into the pot, add the sugar, add the cloves, cinnamon stick and sliced orange pieces. Heat slowly for 10-15 minutes, occasionally stirring. Be careful not to boil the wine.
When the drink is very warm (but not very hot) should be dispensed into cups. Remember to not to use ordinary wine glasses, because they can break under high temperature.
