This mulled wine recipe mixes cardamom, cinnamon, citrus fruits and fresh apple cider in an intoxicating combination that instantly improves any cold winter day. When it comes to wine, try Merlot for its smoothness and fruity taste – but pretty much any decent bottle of red will do. Just be careful not to let the mixture boil. The slightest simmer ensures a lot of taste, but without boiling off all of the alcohol.
This mulled wine recipe can be made two hours before serving. When you’re ready to start slurping, gently reheat yourself over medium-low heat.
