A Few Mulled Wine Recipes

Mulled Wine Recipe

Mulled wine is a perfect winter beverage, especially if it is perfectly made. And if you have no idea what mulled wine is, it is usually red wine with added spices and normally served warm. It has different variations from German recipes to British ones.

This is one recipe I fond during my research, which is basic in every way. It is an important combination of citrus, either one lemon or an orange, and, of course. spices.

The basic spices may be six sticks of cinnamon, 12 whole cloves, 1/4 tsp of nutmeg, 1/8 tsp of ginger, and 1/8 tsp of allspice.

Combine all the spices and citrus of choice in a dry red wine. Add 1/4 cup sugar. Heat the mixture for about fifteen minutes, but do not set to a boil. A well-cleansed, large coffee pot is a great method for heating the wine. Alternatively, any other heating container that is similar to it.

It is suggested to use inexpensive wine. Also, get a very good tasting wine. If it is not very tasteful, the spices might counteract with the flavor and make it worse.

Here is another recipe I found scouring through the depths of the information highway.

These are what you will need: 2 x 75 cl bottles of full-bodied red wine. Bulgarian Cabernet is a decent choice here for this recipe. Then one orange stuck with cloves, two sliced oranges, two sliced lemons, six tablespoons of granulated sugar, two-inch piece cinnamon stick, and two teaspoons of ground ginger.

What you will need to do: First, place all the ingredients in a saucepan with 1.5 liters of water then heat to simmering point, stir the mixture until the sugar has dissolved. Keep it at simmering point for at least twenty minutes, but do not set it to a boil.

You can make this ahead of time and then just reheat it. Serve it warm in half-pint mugs (in which case there will be 12 servings) or else in 24 sturdy wine glasses.

There are tons of mulled wine recipes out there, especially in specific wine recipe books. Go ahead and try experimenting with several varieties because mulled wine differs from tongue to tongue. Trying out different recipes is both satisfying and enriching.
