Nothing quite says Christmas like the spiced aroma of mulled wine. Here’s a delicious and easy recipe to make your own mulled wine at home.
Each year, when we put the Christmas tree up, Mark and I always have mulled wine – it’s part of our Christmas tradition. I’ve tried several different recipes over the years, but this one is my personal favourite.
My recipe is based upon one which was in a Christmas magazine so many years ago that I can’t remember the original source.
It’s important to choose the right wine as the base of your mulled wine. You don’t want one which is so harsh that you wouldn’t drink it normally, but likewise it’s not worth splashing out on a seriously high end bottle when you are going to add so many different flavours to it.
I don’t like very heavy reds but I usually go for something with a bit of body, like a Malbec or a Shiraz Cabernet, rather than a lighter red like a Grenache. I’ve also used a Tarrango from Brown Brothers when I can find it in the shops. In the summer months, I normally drink Tarrango lightly chilled, but it’s also very good warm and spiced.
