Cooking time: 10 minutes

Making mulled wine is actually very easy. I suggest to experiment! You can add cognac/brandy/water, add lemon juice/zest. Some mulled wine lovers like few vanilla pods. Follow your instinct really. Garnish you cups/mugs with cinnamon sticks for Christmassy feel.
Main ingredients of mulled wine are cinnamon sticks, vanilla pods, cloves, citrus and sugar but you can add as well citrus or ornage peels or zest. I cook a lot of Indian food so I nearly habe all ingredients in my cupboard. Here I included 4 main spices needed for mulled wine.
There are many variations of mulled wine drink. The basic recipe includes a bottle of wine, two or three cinnamon sticks, some cloves and about a cup of sugar. The sugar helps remove the tangy flavor the wine gets once its been warmed up. Some mulled wine lovers also add herbal tea to the mix to cut this harshness. You could also add a shot of brandy/cognac, some citrus slices, or any other spices you like.
