Christmas in a Glass
Print Recipe
“Come the festive season, there's nothing better than a spiced, warming glass of this mulled wine. ” This is dead simple to make and tastes like Christmas in a glass. It’s a lovely celebration of those traditional festive spices like cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg. If you’ve got your own favourite spices, then feel free to add those to the pot too. Let everything cook away and warm up gently so the flavours have time to mingle with the wine. I like to leave my mulled wine ticking over on a really low heat and just ladle some into glasses as and when guests pop in.

Ingredients
Servings: people
Instructions
  1. Peel large sections of peel from your clementines, lemon and lime using a speed peeler.
  2. Put the sugar in a large saucepan over a medium heat, add the pieces of peel and squeeze in the clementine juice.
  3. Add the cloves, cinnamon stick, bay leaves and about 10 to 12 gratings of nutmeg.
  4. Throw in your halved vanilla pod and stir in just enough red wine to cover the sugar.
  5. Let this simmer until the sugar has completely dissolved into the red wine and then bring to the boil. Keep on a rolling boil for about 4 to 5 minutes, or until you’ve got a beautiful thick syrup. It’s important to make a syrup base first because it needs to be quite hot, and if you do this with both bottles of wine in there you’ll burn off the alcohol.
  6. When your syrup is ready, turn the heat down to low and add your star anise and the rest of the wine.
  7. Gently heat the wine and after around 5 minutes, when it’s warm and delicious, ladle it into glasses and serve.
