Mulled Wine recipe for winter

Wine Lady shares her recipe for mulled wine and mulled beer

Hot wines and hot beers are my favorites if it comes to keeping warm in the winter season. I do love them with acacia honey, lots of sweet spices and a slice of orange. ‘’Shaken or stirred’’, it doesn’t matter – I drink what I like and I encourage you to do the same. Here’s my mulled wine recipe that keeps me warm during winter.

Mulled beer

If it comes to preparing mulled beer, I use the same ingredients as for the wine. I do not use, however, whole cloves or sticks of cinnamon. I use powder spices instead. It is easier for me to add just a pinch of each of the spices to the beer (often times it is a 33cl bottle of ale), warm it up and finish with some honey. Always tastes delicious!
