Mulled Cranberry Wine

Makes 4 cups / 1 litre

You’ll need:

  • 750-ml bottle red wine (3 cups)
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1 spice packet
  • 1 cup cranberry juice
  • Rind from a small orange or tangerine, cut into strips
  • For garnish: orange or tangerine slices and cinnamon sticks

Can be served warm or chilled, like a spiced sangria.  You can add a splash of club soda if serving as a sangria.

 

‘Tis the night before Christmas at The Seasonal Gourmet

The weather is frightful and the snow’s here to stay

 

What could be better to chase off the cold

Than a cup of mulled wine, with flavours so bold

 

In a large stockpot on medium high

Heat up a bottle of your favourite red wine

 

Pour in the cranberry, only a cup

And heat the whole mixture until it warms up

 

Toss in the spice pack and spoonfuls of sweet

And continue to simmer on medium heat

 

Add in the peel, from an orange rind

Or from a tangerine – whatever you find

 

Garnish your glass with an orange slice

And serve the drinks hot or chilled over ice

 

Have a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year

And enjoy lots of good food and holiday cheer!
