How to make hot mulled wine or non-alcoholic cider:
750 mL bottle of wine or cider (about 25 oz.)
3 Tbsp. organic mulling spice
Honey, sugar, or maple syrup to taste (optional)
Combine all ingredients in a heavy bottomed pot at medium-high heat until it reaches a simmer, avoid letting it bubble.
Reduce the heat to low and cover.
Gently simmer for at least 15 minutes or up to 3 hours.
Scoop out the spices with a mesh spoon or other straining device.
Taste and add your favorite sweetener if preferred.
Serve in mugs with a slice of fresh orange for festive flair.
Steeping the spices in a large cloth bag makes straining much easier.
This recipe is easily adjusted to taste, and the measurements are forgiving if you don’t have the precise amount of ingredients. Easily increase or decrease the quantity for small and large batches.
A crock pot can also be used to slowly heat wine or cider if you have more time. Add ingredients to the crock and leave on low for at least an hour before serving.
