Mulled Wine

Celebrate the festive season in style with some homemade mulled wine - perfect to share on a cold winter evening and it leaves a Christmassy aroma in the kitchen!

Mulled wine recipe - 01
100ml orange juice
100g dark muscovado sugar
1 cinnamon stick
1/2 an orange, sliced
1 bottle of red wine
Place a saucepan on a low/moderate heat and slowly mix the orange juice and sugar together.  Once they have mixed together add the cinnamon stick and sliced orange and leave on a moderate temperature for about 10 minutes.
Now the important part - adding one bottle of red wine.  This doesn't have to be expensive and is open to grape varieties.  I often use supermarket's own wine brands and tend to go for a Cabernet Sauvignon.
Once the wine has been added, leave to heat up on a moderate heat and serve warm.
