Christmas is the time for gifts, delicacies and warm and comforting taste experiences. What could be better than a good mulled wine to celebrate the holidays? Here is a recipe that will allow you to make the perfect mulled wine for your meetings with friends and your Christmas meal!
You will need the following ingredients for your mulled wine:
- 1 liter red wine
- 1 orange
- 1 lemon
- 200 g cane sugar
- 6 cloves
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 5 cardamom seeds

Start by preparing the fruit. Grate the orange and lemon zest without removing the white part, then slice them and set aside. In a thick saucepan, heat the wine over low heat and add the pieces of fruit, cane sugar, cloves, cinnamon stick, cardamom seeds and black peppercorns.
Let it simmer on low heat for at least 20 minutes, until the wine takes on a golden colour. When it is boiled, you filter the mulled wine through a sieve and pour it into warm glasses.
