Mulled Wine – Red or White

What You Need...

1 bottle red wine, 500ml orange juice,

1 cinnamon stick, 2 star anise, 4 cloves, 1 sliced lemon and 1 sliced orange

Ideally this will be made the evening before you need it to allow the mulling spices impart their lovely aroma and delicate taste into the liquid.

Pop all the ingredients in a pan and bring to a slight simmer before turning off the heat and allowing to cool. Gently warm before serving.
