How to make the perfect mulled wine? -

Now that winter is here, sitting by the fireplace and admiring the Christmas tree decorated with love, is amongst the best things to do. In these situations, many of you would wonder what's best to drink. Although coffee or tea remain one of your favourite hot drinks, mulled wine among many others wouldn't be a bad choice as well.

Nowadays, there are many recipes about how to make mulled wine at home, but get ready for the best tips to make the perfect one.

 

  • You will find different types of wines being sold, which are labelled as ‘Mulling Wines’. But this doesn’t really mean that you have to buy them all. You can choose any full-bodied red wine of your choice at a reasonable price.
  • White sugar melts most easily, but demerara will create a hint of syrup into your mulling.
  • A touch of orange is always great. However, it doesn’t necessarily have to be orange, you may use lemon, mandarin or tangerine. You can also add cloves, but the best way is to stud them into the orange. It will hence be easy for removal.
  • Go easy on spices like star anise and cloves, as they can develop into being dominant very swiftly. Remember, a mulled wine must absolutely have nutmeg and cinnamon.
  • Heat the wine slowly to extract its maximum aroma, but never allow it to boil. It is better to avoid alcohol evaporation.

You are ready now to get started!

The Quick Mulled Wine

This recipe is good to make the perfect mulled wine for unexpected guests.

1 x 75cl bottle of red wine
60ml orange liqueur, such as Cointreau or Grand Marnier
60g brown sugar
1 cinnamon stick
1 orange, divided
a good grating of fresh nutmeg
The orange slices for garnishing purpose

Place all ingredients in a large saucepan apart from the orange liqueur. Heat lightly until the sugar has completely melted. Immediately, remove from the heat and mix in the liqueur. Serve your perfect express mulled wine in heat-proof glasses or mugs garnished with a slice of orange.

The Traditional Mulled Wine

This recipe is sweeter than several mulled wines, and uses a huge range of spices.

25g ginger – it needs to be crushed with a knife
1 cinnamon stick
1 tsp entire cloves
a large grating of nutmeg
150g caster sugar
1 x 75cl bottle of red wine
1 orange – it should be cut into 8 slices
Vanilla Pod

Boil 750ml of water along with the spices and ginger, and allow it to reduce by half. Add sugar to the slices of the orange and the red wine. Reduce the heat and mix until the sugar is completely melted. Drop a vanilla pod in the pot and slowly reheat. Serve warm in mugs.

Now that you have some tips and great recipes, why not surprise your guests? After all, nothing says winter better than a scorching mug of mulled wine!
