We’ve all had the traditional red wine version at Christmas but this mulled wine recipe uses white wine, a fresh orange, sugar or honey, cinnamon and cloves. For a child-friendly version, replace the wine with a carton of white grape juice and add a teaspoon of sugar to each mug. Serve with mince pies and plenty of festive cheer.
½ orange, sliced
750ml/25fl oz white wine (not dry)
4 tbp of unrefined sugar (or honey)
1 stick of cinnamon
- Slice the orange and put all the ingredients in a pan
- When the wine begins to simmer and is steaming, take the pan off the heat and remove the spices
- Pour the wine into four mugs and serve steaming hot
