Mulled Wine

Serves 4-6


1 bottle red wine

600ml/1 pint freshly squeezed orange juice

50-75g/2-3oz caster sugar

2 cinnamon sticks, broken in half

12 whole cloves

6 whole star anise

1 lemon, halved and sliced

1 orange, halved and sliced


Place the wine in a pan with the orange juice, sugar, cinnamon, cloves, star anise, lemon and orange slices, and heat gently for about five minutes, to allow the

flavours to combine, stirring occasionally, until the sugar has dissolved. To serve, ladle the mulled wine into heatproof glasses, making sure that some of the orange and lemon slices go into each one.
