Classic mulled wine

Mulled wine party in the garden: We celebrate winter!

On an atmospherically decorated terrace, the balcony or in the garden you can organize a wonderful mulled wine party with friends and family. Christmas roses in wicker baskets create a Christmas atmosphere and, together with fairy lights, decorative stars, fur and fir wreaths, bring the Christmas market atmosphere home.

Classic mulled wine recipe

1 litre red wine; 50 ml amaretto; 2 oranges, sliced; 2 oranges, pressed; 7 cloves; 2 cinnamon sticks; 3 star anises; cardamom; 50 g rock sugar

Here's how to make it: pour red wine and amaretto into a sauce pan. Slice the oranges and add to the mixture together with sugar, orange juice, cinnamon sticks, cloves, anises and cardamom. Heat until just before boiling, cover and leave to simmer for at least an hour.

Tip: Never allow mulled wine to boil! The alcohol would evaporate and the spices would turn bitter.
