Mulled Wine


The smell of mulled wine through the house is amazing. The beautiful citrus smell of winter. 
I had seen a few people whipping up some of this delicious nectar and knew I had to give it a try. I had a look around at a few recipes but decided to make up my own with whatever I had. 
Oh boy was it good. 

What you'll need:

2 Lemons
2 Oranges
1 bottle of red wine 
2 Cinnamon sticks
1 Vanilla pod
1 Star anise
Nutmeg (to taste)
Cloves (to taste)
A splash of Brandy
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup water

What to do:

Cut lemons, oranges and apples into chunks, I also cut some chunks of peel off the oranges.

Place red wine into a large saucepan and gradually heat. 

Add fruit slices, orange peel cinnamon, vanilla pod, nutmeg, cloves and brandy.

Keep an eye on the mixture and wait until it becomes hot to the touch.

Mix the sugar and water together and add to the saucepan. 

Hiccup, Enjoy!
