How To Make The Perfect Mulled Wine

There's nothing that quite matches a nice warm glass of mulled wine on a chilly winters eve, and making the perfect mulled wine is super quick and easy.


Get yourself a large pot and pour in all your ingredients. Heat for 20 minutes on a low to medium temperature, and avoid boiling. When the wine begins to steam and all the sugar has dissolved it is ready to serve. Ladle your yummy mulled wine into glasses but leave the seasoning in the pot, and enjoy!

*Feel free to cut honey/sugar down to taste.


  • Serves 4-6 people
  • One bottle (75 cL) of red wine
  • One peeled and sliced orange (keep the peel for zest)
  • 1/4 cup of brandy
  • 9 cloves
  • 5 table spoons of honey or caster sugar*
  • 3 cinnamon sticks
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 vanilla pod halved or 1 tsp vanilla essence
