Mulled Wine

Making mulled wine in the cold months is lovely. 
Its so spicy and warm.
Here is my recipe, I make it a little different every time. Change and add to it as you wish:
  • 1 bottle Red Wine
  • 75g brown sugar
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 3 star anise
  • 2cm fresh ginger
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • 1 big proper orange
  • A few whole cloves (about a tablespoon of them)
  • 1 bayleaf
  •  
    1. Cut up the orange into slices or chunks or just quarter it. 
    2. Slice up the ginger in the same manner.
    3. Stick the cloves into the skin of the orange to make sure they aren't floating about the wine and getting into the mouthfuls.
    4.  Pour wine into a medium pot. Add all the ingredients and gently heat until steam begins to rise. (don't boil it or the alcohol will diminish)
    5. Serve in big mugs. Feel free to add Sloe Gin to your mug of mulled wine. I sometimes like to put a bit of brandy in.
