Mulled Wine Recipe, great to warm up!

By 20/12/2012

Mulled wine, or "vin Brule'" as it is called in Italy, literally means burned wine and it has been known since the Middle ages.

It has an antiseptic and warming effect to the body and it works very well in soothing colds. It is very popular in mountain regions where winters are particularly cold.

Because of the cinnamon, oranges and the spices which are added it goes well in tune with Christmas.

To me it will always be a memory of my staying in Germany years ago: the Christmas markets filled with multicolour Christmas lights, the wooden Christmas decorations and the smell of mulled wine literally everywhere.

It all felt like a dream. I suppose the wine helped too 🙂

  • Prep Time : 20 minutes
  • Cook Time : 5 minutes



In a saucepan put the sugar, the spices and the zest of the oranges and of the lemon (make sure you don't peel the white of the fruit as it tastes bitter).
