The temps are starting to drop here in the foothills, on their way to downright chilly. That got us thinking about fall and winter beverages, which got us thinking about an old favorite – mulled wine! The depth of spice and dark fruit in our old vine zinfandel makes it a perfect choice for a festive spiced wine.
- 1 Bottle Zinfandel
- 1 Fresh orange, sliced in rounds
- 8 Whole cloves
- 2 Whole cinnamon sticks
- 2 Whole star anise pods
- 2 Whole cardamom pods
- 2 tbsps Honey
- 1/4 cup Brandy (optional)
- 5 Dehydrated orange slices
Combine all ingredients in a small pot, Crock Pot, or Instant Pot.
Heat to just below a simmer for at least 15 minutes and up to 3 hours, to develop flavors. Add 1-2 more tbsp of honey if a sweeter wine is desired.
Strain mulled wine, reserving orange slices for garnish if desired. Ladle into cups, and garnish with dehydrated orange slices.
