Every Christmas party I attend I am asked to bring this drink. I call it Mulled Wine. The only atleration I made is to put in ground ginger instead of the peels of ginger.
It is the best drink ever! It is a keeper for the rest of my life.
I have quite a few different spiced wine/mulled wine recipes and this one is great. Personally, I like it better than with the honey. Honey can make the wine too sweet for me. This is simple and perfect. I used all red wine though and Grand Marnier instead of brandy. Great recipe!
This was delicious; everyone at thanksgiving dinner LOVED it! I did the following:
- Put crockpot on low & poured in 2 bottles of sangria & 1 bottle of pinot Grigio.
- Put the orange zest, ½ tsp dried ginger, ¼ tsp ground cloves, ¼ tsp nutmeg, and 1/4 tsp cardamom in a coffee filter, tied a string around it & put in crockpot.
- Juiced 1 orange and filled the rest of the cup with store bought OJ.
- Stirred in a little over ½ cup brown sugar; Added cinnamon sticks and lemon & orange slices
- Cooked on low for 2 hours & Let people pour brandy into their own cups as desired
This is great for a chilly night. I had some cherry wine so used that as one of the reds and it worked perfectly. Like others I just used crushed ginger (about 1/4 teaspoon) and orange juice (about 1 cup). Thanks for the recipe!
Made this in a crockpot for my family Christmas dinner. Didn't strain. Looked beautiful & made for great presentation! It was the biggest hit of the day! Having it in a crockpot also allowed for all day use while keeping it the perfect temperature. This will be a staple every Christmas from now on!
Hot Spiced Christmas Wine I've made spiced mulled wine for years and everybody always wants me to make some for them for Christmas to take home. I make mine with Sangria; a red Port; cinnamon; cardomom; nutmeg; cloves; brown sugar; and fresh cut slices of oranges and lemons. I don't use exact measurements but make it 'to taste'. I can only suggest readers do the same as not everyone likes the same amount of this or that.
I made this wine and added a bit more brown sugar and grand marnier instead of brandy...sadly it came out tasting too much like ginger! If I decide to make it again I am thinking of just cutting the ginger down to only 1 inch piece and adding more sugar to sweeten the drink up. I don't know what wines everyone used in this recipe I used Shiraz and Chardonnay perhaps I should use sweeter wines? I don't know what I did but the drink is too "tangy."
