What could be nicer than a cup of hot mulled wine in cold weather? This classic German mulled wine on December evening is all you need!


Units Scale
  • 1.5 l of red wine
  • 2 oranges
  • 1 lemon
  • 100 g of sugar
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 8 cloves
  • 2 star anise
  • 1/4 nutmeg (fresh)


  1. First, prepare the ingredients. Wash your oranges and lemon and peel them (do not discard the peel).
  2. Place sugar into the pot, add the fruit peel and turn on the stove. Squeeze out the lemon and orange juice.
  3. Bring to a boil and add the cloves, star anise, cinnamon sticks (split in half), and freshly grated nutmeg.
  4. Let it simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, to create a delicious base or syrup for mulled wine.
  5. Pour the red wine into the pot. Stir and bring to a hot temperature until almost boiling. At this moment turn off the stove and let it rest for a moment to let the wine “soak up” all the wonderful aromas.
  6. Strain through a sieve, pour into a cup and enjoy the best mulled wine in the comfort of your home!


Use relatively good quality wine for mulled wine.

Since we add fruit peels, it is suitable to use organic fruit.
