It's the easiest winter drink to make. Put your inexpensive red wine, brandy, and spices into a pot. Then warm them up and drink.


- red wine - apple juice - brandy - maple syrup - orange - cinnamon sticks - black peppercorns - whole cloves - star anise


Add all the ingredients to a large pot over medium-high heat. As soon as you start to see steam rising from the pot, reduce the heat to medium.

Strain the mulled wine into mugs or thick-walled wine glasses and top with any or all of the optional garnishes.

Don't blow your budget on a good bottle of wine for this recipe. An inexpensive merlot or cabernet sauvignon is perfect.
