About this recipe: Anyone who has been to a European Christmas market knows this festive mulled wine. Let it warm you up throughout the winter!


Serves: 6 

  • 175ml water
  • 150g caster sugar
  • 1 cinnamon stick

  • 10 whole cloves
  • 1 bottle red wine

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:35min  ›  Ready in:45min 

  1. In a saucepan, combine the water, sugar and cinnamon stick. Bring to the boil, reduce heat, and simmer.
  2. Cut the orange in half, and squeeze the juice into the simmering water. Push the cloves into the outside of the orange peel, and place peel in the simmering water. Continue simmering for 30 minutes, until thick and syrupy.
  3. Pour in the wine, and heat until steaming but not simmering. Remove the clove-studded orange halves. Serve hot in mugs or glasses that have been preheated in warm water (cold glasses may break.)
