Mulled Wine for Yule

Mulled Wine

A Yule tradition that can be used to warm up the festivities and brighten spirits all throughout the season!

  • 1 bottle red wine, burgundy or Cabernet
  • 1 cup orange juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1 cup apple brandy
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 red apple, washed
  • Cloves
  • 1 Orange, washed, sliced into rounds
  • 4 cinnamon sticks

Gently combine wine, orange juice, brandy, and sugar in a large saucepan and heat over medium-low heat. Stud the washed apple with cloves and float it in the mulled wine mixture, along with orange slices and cinnamon sticks. Keep at a low simmer for about fifteen minutes. Serve from a warm slow cooker or crock, if you have one, or heatproof serving bowl. Let the merrymaking begin!
