Ingredients

  • Red wine 1 bottle, cheap and cheerful will do!
  • Caster sugar 80g
  • Cinnamon one large stick or two small
  • Dried ginger 5g
  • Cloves 10
  • Cardamom pods 5
  • Piece of Seville orange peel can substitute with other type of orange, although it will not be as bitter

Method

  • Step 1

    Pour the wine into a saucepan and add the sugar and all the spices. Heat until the mixture is hot but not boiling (around 80º C- anything above and the alcohol will start to evaporate). Turn off the heat and leave to infuse for an hour or more.

  • Step 2

    Strain the spices – and your glögg mulled wine is ready. Serve in small cups, warm, with a teaspoon of flaked almond and raisins added.

  • Step 3

    A dash of cognac or rum can be added to the finished product for extra warmth.
