What is Mulled Wine?

Originating from the heart of Europe, mulled wine is a spiced and heated red wine that warms the soul, especially during the chilly months. It is a celebration of tradition and a testament to the art of blending spices and aromas. 

While any red wine can do the work, dry and full-bodied red wines like Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Zinfandel, or Syrah are considered the most tempting experience. 


  • 1 Red wine 
  • 2-3 Cinnamon Sticks 
  • 8-10 Whole Cloves 
  • 2-3 Star Anise 
  • 1 teaspoon Grated Nutmeg 
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup of Honey, Maple Syrup, or Sugar (adjust based on your desired level of sweetness) 
  • 1 Orange (sliced) 
  • 1 Lemon (sliced) 
  • Orange or Lemon Peel Twists for garnish 

Crafting Mulled Wine 

Begin by pouring your chosen red wine into a saucepan. 

Gently drop in cinnamon sticks, cloves, star anise, and grated nutmeg. Allow the spices to infuse into the wine, creating a rich tapestry of aromas. 

Stir in your preferred sweetener, whether it’s honey, maple syrup, or sugar. Adjust the sweetness according to your taste preferences. 

Slice oranges and lemons, adding them to the mix. The citrus notes provide a burst of freshness and complexity. 

Warm the concoction over low heat, ensuring not to boil the wine. Let the spices meld with the wine, creating a delightful aroma. Pour the wine into your Lucaris wine glass and enjoy it warm.
