Simple Mulled Wine

Think Christmas, think winter. Think winter, think mulled wine. Here’s a quick and easy mulled wine recipe to cosy up to this season:

You will need:

1 bottle of red wine
60g of demerara sugar
1 stick of cinnamon
2 orange halves
1 dried bay leaf
60ml of sloe or damson gin (optional)


Put the wine in a saucepan with the orange, sugar, bayleaf and the spices.

Heat gently until the sugar has dissolved. Taste to see if you want the wine sweeter, and add more sugar to taste.

Off the heat, stir in the sloe or damson gin if you are using it.

Strain into heatproof glasses and serve at once.
