Hot Mulled Wine

The winter’s night has already reached a few friends and is sure to nip a few others in the nose before you know it. Halloween brings with it a chill in the air, maybe some rain or snow and need for warming insides while a roaring fire takes care of our toes. This mulled wine is perfect for one of those nights. Make a batch for the grown ups passing out candy.


  • 1 Bottle Red Wine (Don’t spend too much)
  • 1/4 Cup Sugar
  • 1/4 Cup Brandy
  • 2-3 Cinnamon Sticks
  • 10-12 Cloves
  • Pinch of allspice
  • 1 Orange,  carefully peeled and sliced


  • Large Pot
  • Ladle
  • Chef’s Knife
  • Cork Screw
  1. Combine all ingredients in a large pan, reserving the orange peel for garnish.
  2. Warm but do not boil, for about 20 minutes.
  3. Ladle out, straining if needed. Leave on stove to sweeten the air.
