Mulled Wine

Warm Holiday Wine.

I came across a recipe for mulled wine on the Food Network website, I wanted to try it out so I made a few changes to accommodate what I had in my kitchen. I had never tried mulled wine before, and was hesitant that I might not like it. However, I was extremely happy with the end result. If you have never had mulled wine before the best way I could to describe it would be that it’s a warm “harvesty” winter version of sangria. This recipe is very easy and it’s great for the holiday season.

Ingredients:

1 Bottle red wine

2 1/2 Cups of apple cider

2 Cinnamon sticks

1 Orange (squeezed & zested)

2 Tablespoons agave syrup

1 Teaspoon cinnamon

1 Teaspoon allspice

1 Orange peel for garnish

Directions:

Combine wine, apple cider, cinnamon , orange juice and zest, agave, and allspice into large saucepan. Bring to boil, then allow to simmer for 10 minutes. Pour into glasses and garnish with orange peels.
