WARM FIRE....... MULLED WINE...AND HERE IS THE RECIPE

Last weekend we had a few people around at our place for drinks and a casual bbq.  I posted a few pics up on Facebook of our night around the outside brazier. One of the things that I trotted out, was some deliciously warming mulled wine.....  When was the last time you had mulled wine? For me, well that would be late 80's. Since I don't go skiing anymore, mulled wine has not crossed my path or entered my thoughts.  After that post I had quite a few people ask me for the recipe......so here it is.

MULLED WINE

INGREDIENTS

1 bottle red wine - fruity one is best

2 cinnamon sticks

10 or so cloves

6 or so allspice berries

1/4 cup sugar

Slices of orange

Everyone has their own taste on how they like drinks. You can adjust this recipe to your taste. Add a few drops of cinnamon and orange oil to make even more fragrant.

Tie spices up in a muslin cloth

Pour wine, stir in sugar, place muslin and orange slices in a saucepan.

 Simmer for about 20 minutes.

Meanwhile.....tart up some wine glasses...

Stoke the fire....

Enjoy.....
