Mulled Wine

Mulled wine gets its rich, fragrant flavor from the addition of spices and a quick simmer on the stove. This brew boasts berries, apple juice, honey, citrus fruits, and cinnamon sticks. One sip and you'll feel right at home.

Real Simple DECEMBER 2008

  • Yield: Makes 8 drinks

Ingredients

  • 1 navel orange
  • 4 cups apple juice
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 2-inch piece fresh ginger, thinly sliced
  • 6 whole allspice berries
  • 10 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 bottle dry red wine

Preparation

Using a vegetable peeler, peel the zest from the orange in long strips. (Reserve the fruit for another use.)

In a large saucepan, gently simmer the zest, apple juice, honey, ginger, allspice, and 2 cinnamon sticks for 20 minutes. Stir in the wine and cook just until heated through. Serve hot with the remaining cinnamon sticks.

Tip: For an extra touch, spike it with a splash of Cointreau. Add 1/4 cup Cointreau or some other orange-flavored liqueur to the pot.
