Mulled Wine


I remember when I was little and my aunt made some mulled wine when we were at our weekend cabin. It was only for the grown-ups obviously, but when I smelled it I couldn't understand how they could find that delicious. It smelled horrible to me.

Today? It's one of my favourite drinks in the winter. And yesterday I've officially opened the season of homemade mulled wine! It was snowing so the time was just about right. The smell of mulled wine makes the perfect December atmosphere. 

Here's the best recipe I've ever tried:

Mulled wine recipe

0,5 l red or white wine
0,5 l water
8 tablespoons sugar (that's by the recipe, but I use less sugar)
1 small bag vanilla sugar (around 5 g)
10 clove
1 cinnamon stick
1 orange
1 mandarin

Pour the wine and the water into a kettle, and put all the ingredients inside (cut the mandarin into small pieces and use only half of the orange - the other half is for decoration; and don't forget to peel both before you put them into the kettle!). After it starts boiling, leave it for another 2 minutes, then just remove the fruit pieces (the easiest way is with a filter) and pour it into the cups. Serve hot!

Have a great start of the week!

  10. I'm obsessed with mulled wine! The first time I had it was at a crepe stand in the Latin Quarter while studying in Paris. There was an old man working there and as he was making my drink he started giggling as he poured a little grand marnier into the drink, which made it taste so much better. Long story short, I went to that same crepe stand for mulled wine and a nutella crepe at least three times a week.

  20. Even though it looks so lovely on your pics I am going to skip mulled wine this year ... It is once again sold in large quantities right now (here in Germany), most of it the "industrial stuff" of course, and my stomach has been telling me I should avoid it this year (something about wine, sugar, spices, probably chemicals, not being to my precious stomach's liking, at least not in large quantities usually drank during this season) and skip the natural varieties like yours, too, so I guess I am going to go for hot prosecco (it is MUCH better than it sounds :-), because nothing gets added) instead this season, or maybe hot beer.
    And try making my own mulled wine in the years to come :-) (damn, I almost posted the comment saying I'd be making mullet wine - imagine that! :-D)

  22. Tried it yesterday and it was so good. Most of the alcohol disappeared from the wine because of the heating, but I liked it that way. The mulled wines that are sold in Estonia usually have a very bitter taste, but the fruits and spices made this one taste so natural and mild.
