Cherry Mulled Wine

Cherry Mulled Wine


  • 1 orange
  • 10 cloves
  • cup brandy
  • 2 whole star anise
  • 3 cardamom pods, lightly bruised
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 cup pitted cherries
  • 150 grams brown sugar
  • 2 long slices lemon peel
  • 2 bottles merlot
  • 1 cup orange juice

Serves 6-8

  1. Stud the orange with the cloves and place in a large saucepan or Dutch oven, along with the brandy, spices, cherries, sugar, lemon peel and enough red wine to cover everything. Simmer until the sugar is dissolved, then increase the heat to a low boil and cook for about 5 minutes, or until you get a thick syrup.
  2. Reduce the heat and add the remaining wine and the orange juice. Warm through, and ladle into mugs or glasses to serve.
