As the cold nights draw in, nothing beats a hot glass of mulled wine by the fire.

Ingredients: 

  • 1 large orange
  • 3 lemons
  • 12 cloves
  • 2 satsumas or clementines
  • 2 x 750ml bottles red wine
  • 2 cinnamon sticks

Method:

Carefully peel the zest very thinly from the orange and lemons using a vegetable peeler. Squeeze out the juice and reserve.

Stick the cloves into the satsumas.

Pour the wine, 1.2 litres/2 pints of cold water, and the citrus peel and juices into a large, heavy-based saucepan. Add the clove-studded satsumas and cinnamon sticks. Bring the mixture just to the boil, then reduce the heat until the mixture is simmering, cover the pan with the lid, and continue to simmer for about 1 hour.

Strain the mulled wine and serve hot in cups.

Happy weekend – Enjoy your festive tipple!
