Mulled Wine

Happy National Mulled Wine Day! Evidently it March 3 every year. In honor of that, here is a great recipe!


  • 1 (750 ml) bottle of dry red wine
  • 1/4 cup brandy (or orange liqueur)
  • 1 orange, sliced into rounds (also peeled, if you would like a less-bitter drink)
  • whole cloves
  • cinnamon sticks
  • star anise
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons brown sugar, honey, or maple syrup to taste (or your desired sweetener)
  • optional garnishes: citrus slices (orange, lemon and/or lime), extra cinnamon sticks, extra star anise


Combine all ingredients in a crockpot on low, stirring occasionally. Watch the temperature. You only want it simmering. Simmer for about an hour and serve!

Garnish with orange slices and cinnamon sticks!
