Mulled wine

Classic mulled wine made with oranges, brandy and a medley of warming spices.



  • 1 (1 1/2 litre) bottle dry red wine
  • 2 oranges, sliced in half then into half-rounds
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon whole cloves
  • 4 cinnamon sticks, plus more for garnish
  • 5 star anise, plus more for garnish
  • 10 cardamom pods
  • ½–1 cup brandy


  1. Pour the wine into a large stockpot over low/medium-low heat and add in the orange slices, sugar, honey, cloves, cinnamon, star anise, and cardamom pods.
  2. Heat until just under a simmer, stirring occasionally, and hold at that temperature for at least 15 minutes to dissolve the sugar and infuse the wine with all of those lovely flavours.
  3. When about to serve, pour about a shot of brandy into each mug and top with mulled wine.  For garnish, throw in an extra cinnamon stick and some of those mulled orange slices.
