Christmas Mulled Wine / Gluhwein

No Christmas would be complete without it. Not tried it? You don't know what you're missing. Here's my take on this lovely, hot yuletide drink.


  • 2 bottles Baron St. Jean Rouge
  • 100g soft light brown sugar
  • 3 oranges cut into 6 wedges
  • 3 lemons cut into 6 wedges
  • 500ml orange juice
  • 4 tsp whole cloves
  • 2 tsp mixed spice
  • 8 tea bags
  • 2 whole cinnamon sticks
  • 150g semi-dried prunes

  • Place all the ingredients into a large saucepan (not aluminium) and gently heat stirring occasionally so the sugar does not stick.
  • Do not boil or the mulled wine will lose its kick.
  • Using a ladle, carefully pour the wine into sturdy glasses. Include a wedge or two of fruit, and a prune, in each glass.

Phil's Tips

Remember, if you boil the mulled wine,

most of the alcohol will evaporate!

You can give extra spice to the drink by adding a little extra sugar and a dash or two of Brandy.

A white wine version is also rather nice, if your guests are not red wine lovers.
