Spiced Mulled Red Wine
Mulled wine is a very common cocktail to have during the winter. It is a hot cocktail that you can easily make on the stove. It can be tailored to your liking by adjusting the amounts of spices.
Note: Not all wines are vegetarian/vegan. Check labels or contact the winery to find out if your choice of wine fits your dietary preference.
- 1 medium orange
- 4 whole cloves
- 1 750 milliliter bottle red wine (I used Merlot)
- 2 cups apple cider
- ¼ cup granulated sugar
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- ¼ cup triple sec such as Cointreau
Slice the orange into even rounds, about ½-inch thick. Stick 2 cloves into the skin of one of the orange slices and 2 into the skin of another orange slice.
Place a large pot on the stove and pour in the wine, apple cider, and sugar along with the cinnamon sticks and orange slices. Heat on medium until it begins to simmer. Turn the heat to low and let sit, continuing to cook for 30 minutes. Stir occasionally.
When finished cooking, add the triple sec, stir, and serve warm.
