Mulled Wine Recipe + A Cocktail.

Is sangria season officially over on Labor Day? If so, I'm silently crying into my wine glass. It has become a welcome tradition on Friday afternoon to start a pitcher of sangria and sip on it all weekend long. Oh well...as we fast forward into shorter days and cooler evenings, a glass of Mulled Wine or Cider is definitely on our list of things to unwind with.

*This dish highlights our Mulling Spice Blend found on our site.*

Mulled Wine with Citrus, Persimmon and Cherries

  • 1 gallon red wine (also delicious with cider)
  • 2 tbsp. organic sugar
  • 2 tbsp. Mulling Spice (sold on www.glassjarnaturaltea.com)
  • 6 slices dried oranges
  • 6 slices dried persimmon
  • Generous handful dried cherries

Add Mulled Spice Blend to cotton muslin bag (also sold on site) or cheesecloth.  Combine all ingredients in large pot and simmer on low/medium heat for 45 minutes or so. Strain the fruits and spices; store in the frig until ready to use.

Mulled Wine Cocktail

  • 4 oz. mulled wine
  • 1 oz. brandy
  • 1 oz. triple sec
  • Ginger Beer
  • Ice

Add first three ingredients into a large glass or jar. Shake or stir gently; add ice. Top with ginger beer.

Cheers!

  • Hi Voleta! You can swap out apple cider for a nice alternative. I hope you try it!
