Mulled Winter Wine Recipe

Mulled Wine is on my must-have holiday cocktail recipe list or a winter time treat! I was first introduced to this festive drink at a Christmas market in Germany, and it’s a recipe I look forward to making every year.


  • 1 bottle red wine
  • 1 orange, sliced into rounds
  • 6 whole cloves
  • 3 cinnamon sticks
  • 3 star anise
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup brandy


  • In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine all ingredients. Bring to a simmer not a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer gently over low heat for 10 minutes.
  • Serve warm and garnish with more citrus slices and cinnamon sticks.
