History of mulled wine:
Mulled wine originated in the 2nd century and was created by the Romans who would heat wine to defend their bodies against the cold winter. As the Romans conquered much of Europe throughout the next century, their love for mulled wine spread across their empire and the regions they traded with. To this day, mulled wine continues to be a fall and winter tradition alongside its sister drink, mulled cider. We’ve put together a quick and easy recipe so you too can make your very own batch!
What you will need:
- 2 (750 ml) bottles of Beachaven Barrelhead Red (dry red wine)
- 2 shots of port
- 1 orange cut into 5 segments and stuffed with cloves
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp nutmeg
- 2-5 tbsp brown sugar
Heat all ingredients in a pan on a gentle heat for 20 minutes. Make sure not to bring the liquid to a boil, as this will remove the alcohol.
