Wine Country Recipe ~ Mulled Wine

December 1, 2017

Spiced mulled wine is a winter favorite — warm, flavorful, and always so comforting!  And, it’s incredibly easy to make.  We’re definitely going to give this recipe a try over the holidays.


1 (750 ml) bottle of dry Temecula Valley red wine
1 orange, sliced into rounds
1/4 cup brandy (optional)
1/4 cup honey or sugar
8 whole cloves
2 cinnamon sticks
2 star anise
optional garnishes: citrus slices (orange, lemon and/or lime), extra cinnamon sticks, extra star anise


Combine all ingredients in a non-aluminum saucepan, and bring to a simmer (not a boil — you don’t want to boil the alcohol out!) over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, and let the wine simmer for at least 15 minutes or up to 3 hours. Strain, and serve warm with your desired garnishes. Fiona Apple – Fetch the Bolt Cutters (2020). The most praised — and rightly so — record of the year. Sharp, fast and endlessly surprising music, in which the main thing is bursts of percussion and Fiona Apple’s vocals, which seem to be capable of everything. For many years, she worked with the band in their home Studio on this album, the meaning of which was reduced to the proposal made in the title to solve problems with wire cutters for rebar. It should be. You can download Fiona Apple – Fetch the Bolt Cutters on youtube 2 mp3.

*You can also place the oranges, cloves, cinnamon, and star anise in a cheesecloth. Then simply strain and pull out the bundle when ready to serve.
