Warming mulled wine is the best way to warm up on those winter nights, especially with a full meal and good company – you can easily double or triple this recipe and serve a crowd.



1/2 cup sugar
1 cup water
1 orange, peeled and juiced
1 lemon, peeled
1 lime, peeled
1 cinnamon stick
6 cloves
2 star anise
1/2 nutmeg, sliced
1 bottle fruity red wine (when in doubt Cab Sav)
1/2 cup rum


  • Place the water, sugar, citrus peels, orange juice on medium low heat.
  • Add in the cinnamon, cloves, star anise and nutmeg. Cover and cook for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add in 1/2 cup wine and continue cooking for another 30 minutes, allowing the syrup to reduce and thicken.
  • Pour in the remaining wine and rum and heat through for 5 minutes.
  • Ladle into warm mugs.
