How to make mulled wine … Kitchen helper
With the colder days drawing in, there’s no reason to hibernate. Entertaining in winter in Tasmania takes on a whole different feeling when you embrace the cold. With a firepit burning and a glass of mulled wine in your hand, who’d be anywhere else?
Making mulled wine is easy and involves things probably already in your pantry. Just combine a 750mL bottle of red wine of your choice (something full bodied like a shiraz or cabernet), with one orange sliced into rounds, 8 whole cloves, 3 cinnamon sticks, 3 star anise, ¼ cup honey and ½ cup brandy. Bring to a simmer but don’t allow to boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer gently for 10 minutes. Ladle into glasses and serve warm with additional orange rounds as garnish if desired.
