Your New Favorite Winter Wine Cocktail
I’m still feeling festive over here, and the cold weather is just getting started. Warm yourself up with some mulled wine! If you love red wine and apple cider, this will be your new favorite winter drink.
I first tried mulled wine at a Christmas market in Paris at the Eiffel Tower. I was on cloud nine strolling through the stalls, and those memories stick with me every time I drink a mug. Cheers to making new winter memories with this recipe to sip at home!
Mulled wine recipe
Serves about 6
1 bottle red wine (I used cab)
3 cups apple cider
1/4 cup honey
2 cinnamon sticks
1 orange, zested and juiced
4 whole cloves
3 star anise
1 orange peel, for garnish
Combine all ingredients except garnish in a large saucepan and bring to boil. Lower heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Serve in mugs with an orange peel as a garnish.
If you’re not a big anise/fennel/licorice lover, leave out the anise and add more cinnamon sticks.
Enjoy your mulled wine all winter long. Tag me if you make the recipe or comment below with your favorite mulled wine mems!
