Get a large pot and add the zest of the two clementines. Peel one and add the slices to the pot. Stick about 15 cloves into the other and add. Zest the lemon into the pot, slice the body in two and add. Add your stick of cinnamon and ginger. Boil the 500ml water and dissolve the sugar in it. Add to the pot. Add the wine.
Cover and put on a very low heat. Do not boil it, just heat it gently. To serve either sieve the whole lot into a fresh pot or sieve by the glass.
This was so easy to make and tasted absolutely delicious – neighbours and friends love it too. This recipe will certainly become a Christmas tradition. I added an extra cinnamon stick and 2 dried bay leaves and 5 black pepper corns and 1 star anise and used unrefined Demerara sugar – highly recommended! - 27 Dec 2011
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh yesssssssssss! Added some cider on one occasion and some rum on another occasion. deeeeelicious. Have made a few batches of this mulled wine recipe over the festive period and it just seems to get better each time, delicious if made a day in advance! Try Blossom Hill Smooth and Spicey red wine, I find is works rather well. Enjoy. - 28 Aug 2013
