The gloves are off (literally) as we sip on this warming, wondrous, and perfect-for-the-holidays Spiced Mulled Wine.
1 (750 mL) bottle dry red wine, such as Cabernet or Merlot
8 tbsp brown sugar
1 orange, sliced
8 whole cloves
2 cinnamon sticks
2 star anise
4 cinnamon sticks, for garnish
1 sliced orange, for garnish
1. In a large saucepan, combine red wine and brown sugar over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally until sugar dissolves.
2. Once sugar has dissolved, add 1 sliced orange, cloves, 2 cinnamon sticks, and star anise. Simmer for 20 minutes, careful not to boil wine.
3. Strain wine through a mesh sieve, and let cool slightly before serving, along with cinnamon sticks and orange slices.
Makes 4 mulled wine cocktails.
