How to make Mulled Wine Recipe

Mulled Wine is better to make when you’re just about to enjoy it. You only need to warm the wine, so be careful to not overheat it to the point that it starts evaporating. Since this recipe is a stovetop version, it is easier to keep an eye on the heat level (there are longer versions of this recipe that use a slow cooker).

  • cups of water
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 lemon peel
  • ½ orange peel
  • 4 whole cloves
  • 1 pinch of nutmeg
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 bottle of red wine 750ml


  • Place the water, sugar, orange & lemon peels, whole cloves, and a pinch of nutmeg in a saucepan. Turn the heat to medium and allow the sugar to dissolve; this will let the spices’ flavors and aromas to blend together. Once it comes to a boil and the sugar has dissolved, reduce the heat and gently simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Strain this syrup and return it to the saucepan. Add the wine and turn the heat to low. Warm the wine mixture for a couple of minutes, but do not allow it to simmer.
  • Serve in cups/glasses and enjoy!


  • If you want, you can also add a little bit of brandy to this drink before serving.
  • I like to top each cup of Mulled Wine with a wedge of orange.
