Holiday Mulled Wine
This spiced mulled wine recipe is the perfect drink for a winter evening by yourself or with family and friends and only takes 30 minutes!
(Cointreau, Triple Sec, or Grand Mariner)
(unfiltered, raw apple juice)
orange, peeled and juiced
(peels and juice reserved)
orange, thinly sliced
(about 1 in. thick)
Peel one whole orange. Try to get as little of the white pith on the peel as possible. Add the peel to a pot large enough for all ingredients.
Take the same orange you peeled and juice the orange juice into the pan with the peels.
Slice half of your second orange into 4-5 slices and add to your pot. Save remaining half for garnish.
Add all of the other ingredients and turn to medium heat till steam is visible but not bubbling.
Turn the pot to low and let it simmer for 30 minutes. Taste and adjust sweetness with more honey if necessary.
Strain wine from the other ingredients. Serve hot and garnish with cinnamon sticks, orange slices, and cranberries if desired!
Apple Cider can be subbed for Honey. 1/2 c of juice = 2 tbsp honey
