Mulled wine is a traditional part of the holiday seasons. A centuries-old favorite in many European countries throughout winter.
Depending on the country, you will find various recipes but one thing in common: red wine steeped in a mix of warm winter spices.
Here is an easy, slow cooker recipe you can easily make for serving with your holiday appetizers.
- 2 bottles dry red wine
- 1/2 cup corn syrup or golden syrup
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup orange peel
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
- 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Combine both bottles of wine, corn syrup, honey, water, orange peel, cinnamon stick, allspice and nutmeg in a 4-quart crockpot and stir well to combine.
Cover the slow cooker and cook on low for 2 1/2 hours, stirring once during cooking.
Remove orange peel and cinnamon stick before serving. Place a thin orange slice in the bottom of each mug and spoon the hot wine over the orange.
