Although it's not totally freezing outside just yet, it's definitely a little chilly...which is reason enough to start drinking hot and cozy mulled wine.
The delicious concoction is the perfect way to get your buzz on during the holidays, and is actually super easy to make:
- 1 bottle red wine, any works but we tried it with Cabernet Sauvignon
- ¼ cup brandy
- ¼ cup water
- ¼ cup honey
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 6 cloves
- 2 star anise
- 1 lemon
- 1 orange
- Add the first 7 ingredients to a saucepan. Juice the lemon and orange and add the juice to the pan.
- Bring to a boil over medium heat then reduce to low heat and simmer for another 15 minutes.
- Serve warm with orange slices.
