This will take a couple of days to soak, so start well on time if you’re planning on mulled wine for a little party.
What you’ll need
- A bottle of nice pinot noir, not too young, not too complex either
- Slices of dried oranges
- Cinnamon sticks
- Star aniseed
- Pink peppercorns
- Dried chilli
- Nutmeg, grated
- Honey, 2-3 large spoons, depending on how sweet you want the result to be
How to cook it
Throw everything into a wide pan and heat on low temperature until it starts simmering. Never cook it, the heat would burn the flavours. Transfer to a bottle and stuff all spices and the orange slices in, seal and let sit in a warm spot for a couple of days.
How to have it
Before serving, heat again until it starts simmering and pour into pre-warmed mugs. You may add a cinnamon stick and a dried orange slice to make it pretty. Serve steaming and with some gingerbread or membrillo aside.
