As quickly because the tree is up, I make my first batch of mulled wine. Even once we lived in Los Angeles, I might discover the components and serve it to associates who had by no means heard of it earlier than. The aroma of sliced oranges, cloves, cinnamon and purple wine is among the most welcoming scents to fill the air. Go away it gently effervescent on the range: it immediately makes the home odor like Christmas!
In a big pot add:
1 bottle of purple wine
3 cinnamon sticks/about 8 cloves
2 star anise
1 sliced orange
A superb drizzle of honey
Heat on the range for 20 to half-hour, then pressure and serve with a ladle – cheers!
