Hot Spiced Wine

Mulled wine is popular in many countries around the world, from Chile to Czech Republic. Because of its universality, this hot toddy has many varieties, from slow-cooked to quick and easy. This particular recipe is one of the simpler versions.


• 1/2 cup sugar

• 10 whole cloves

• 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

• 3 peppercorns, whole

• 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg (to taste)

• 1 orange, juiced

• 1 bottle red wine

• Cinnamon sticks (optional)

Prep time: 5 minutes, Cook time: 5 minutes


1. Combine all ingredients except wine in a pan and boil for five minutes.

2. Reduce heat, add wine. Heat to the point where it is just before boiling. (Try to avoid boiling; the alcohol will begin to evaporate.)

3. Strain into cups and serve hot.

4. Garnish with cinnamon sticks, if desired. Serves four.
