WHAT IS MULLED WINE?
Mulled wine is a sweetened spiced wine, typically heated up and flavored with spices like cinnamon, cloves and star anise. Also called Gluhwein, it’s a hugely popular red wine based drink enjoyed in cold weather, mostly around the holidays.
In fact, the Christmas market wouldn’t quite have the same warmth without a cup (or three).
Well we’ve made a mulled wine recipe the whole family can enjoy!
Sure, we had to subtract the actual red wine from the equation. However cranberry juice warmed with mulling spices totally hits the spot on a snowy day at the ice-skating rink or spent around the fireplace with loved ones.
Star anise, cloves and cinnamon impart a rich, woody essence to the tartness of the cranberry juice. And orange slices lend their sweet freshness to create a virgin drink that has many of the same flavor properties of the original.
And this non alcoholic mulled wine is super easy to whip up in your rice cooker!
