Serves 8 | Prep Time 5mins | Cook Time 15mins | Cook Style Stovetop | Skill Level Basic



  • Slices of citrus
  • Cinnamon sticks


  • Place a large saucepan over medium heat and toss in your spices to toast. When they become fragrant, add the red wine.
  • Warm your wine, but hold it below a simmer so the flavours infuse, but you don’t lose the liquid to evaporation.
  • Add the orange juice and citrus peel.
  • Add sugar and stir in, tasting as you go so you don’t over sweeten. Keep the wine warm for 15 minutes and allow all the flavours to infuse.
  • Serve in a glass with slices of citrus and a cinnamon stick to garnish.

Cook’s Notes

  • Fruity reds with some tannin makes the best choice for Mulled Wine so try a Grenache, Zinfandel or Merlot. 
  • Try your own spice mix and refine the recipe to suit your taste. Try coriander seeds, fennel seeds or fenugreek.
  • Choose a glass you can really wrap your hands around. I love these generous stemless red wine glasses from House by Alex Liddy.
  • The small wooden bowls from Kmart really lend themselves to housing the moody coloured spices in the recipe.

Picture yourself fireside or rugged up on the couch with a warming, spiced drink cupped in your hands keeping them warm. I’m a huge fan of Mulled Wine and I wanted  to share my favourite recipe. Mulled wine will fill your house with the most glorious aromas and warm both the hands and heart. Drinking trends are seeing more of us move towards non-alcoholic versions of classic beverages these days, so I have suggested a dealcoholised red wine here. Please note you can use a standard red wine if that better suits. Happy sipping.
