There is truly nothing better than snuggling up in front of the fire with a glass of mulled wine on a cold winter evening.
If you are anything like us, you will at least double this recipe to share with family and friends. It’s wonderfully spicy and winter-warming and will have you glowing in no time.
You could also put all the spices together with the orange in a cheesecloth and simply pull out the bundle when ready to serve.
Mulled wine can also be made on low in a slow cooker and kept warm on the bench for an afternoon or evening of wintery goodness. And it smells amazing!
