Mulled wine season

It’s not Holiday time without a good hot mug of spiced, sweet mulled wine, or Glühwein! Yum! So hearty and comforting! Definitely the best drink to sip as soon as you come home from a long walk in this chilly weather.

Ready in literally 10 minutes and super yummy, mulled wine will warm you up very quickly.

I was looking for a recipe online but I didn’t like any so I just put together the ingredients I thought would create a tasty mulled wine:

1 orange halved

6 cloves

1 star anise

2 cinnamon sticks

1 bottle of Merlot

150 gr of sugar (add more if you prefer it a little sweeter)

a handful of fresh cranberries




Combine all ingredients in a large saucepan, bring to a simmer and leave over low heat for 10 minutes without boiling. Once ready serve it hot.
