Wondering what to do with all those bottles of wine your friends gifted to you during the holidays? Transform it into mulled wine – a warm elegant drink with sugar and spice.
Serves 10; Cook time: 20 minutes
- 2 bottles dry red wine
- 4 ounces port or brandy
- 12 whole cloves
- 4 cinnamon sticks
- ½ cup brown sugar
- 1 large orange, zested
Combine ingredients in a large pot and bring to a simmer. Do not allow mixture to boil. Heat for 20 minutes and serve in a large, heat resistant punch bowl. For a cute garnish, place a cinnamon stick in each glass.
