The Christmas season means many things, but one thing the cold and festive holiday brings is an abundance of delicious warm beverages of all flavors and varieties. Today we're sharing a recipe for mulled wine that is sure to warm up any cold winter evening.
Spiced Mulled Wine
1 bottle of full-bodied red wine (we recommend Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, or Merlot)
1 vanilla bean, slit down the middle
1 cinnamon stick
2 star anise pods
2 cardamom pods
4 whole cloves
1 tsp ground nutmet
1/4 cup honey or white cane sugar
1 sliced orange OR 1/2 cranberry juice
1/4 brandy (optional)
Combine all ingredients in a pot and bring to a boil, then turn down the heat to a slow simmer. Let rest for about an hour. This recipe gets better with time, so don't worry about letting it sit on the stove all day!
