Tom’s Mulled Wine Recipe16 June 2020 – posted in: Recipes
As the temperature drops, the desire to get cosy is on the rise. There’s nothing like a glass of mulled wine to help you stay warm and toasty. The mixture of wine, spices, and fruit flavours drives back the cold, and it’s a brilliant drink to enjoy all winter long. The beauty of mulled wine is that it’s a drink that you can enjoy on its own. Tom Cupitt spent a lot of time and mulled wine sipping to perfect this recipe. We hope you enjoy it with some friends around a campfire.
2 bottles of red wine of your choice
Zest/Peel of 2 oranges (no pith) and squeeze in the orange juice
100g Brown Sugar + 30g Castor Sugar
1 Cinnamon quill
2 Star Anise
1 pinch of freshly grated Nutmeg
30ml Muscat (optional)
30ml Brandy/Grand Marnier/Cointreau
120ml Stones Ginger Wine
STEP 1: In a large stainless steel pot, add sugar, cinnamon, star anise, cloves, nutmeg, orange peel (zest only – no pith), and juice, and enough wine to cover.
STEP 2: Simmer until the sugar is dissolved and then boil for 4-5 minutes to make a thick syrup.
STEP 3: Add the remaining wine, muscat, brandy and ginger wine and gently heat (not boil) for 5 minutes.
STEP 4: When it’s warm and delicious, ladle it into glasses and serve. Garnish additional orange slices and cinnamon stick if desired.
