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 wine recipe
- 1 (750ml) bottle of red wine
- 1 big orange, sliced into rounds
- 85g (3oz) of acacia honey
- 4 whole cloves
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- 3 star anise
Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and let the wine simmer for about 20 minutes. Strain and serve warm in mugs. Garnish with a slice of orange. (4-5 servings)
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!
