How to make mulled wine

MulledWineAdamGray.jpg

When it comes to a Christmas tipple, eggnog doesn't really cut it for us. Mulled wine is clearly the superior festive drink. With that in mind, we spoke to chef Adam Gray from Great British Chefs (greatbritishchefs.com) on how to make the perfect glass.

Cooking time: 30 minutes

Serves: 6

Notes: You don't have to use a fine wine for this recipe - something decent that you would normally cook with will do

Ingredients

. 750ml of red wine

. 250ml of orange juice

. 100ml of water

. 50ml of peach schnapps

. Half an orange

. 5g of star anise

. 3g of cloves

. 1g of juniper berries

. 1 cinnamon stick

. 1 cardamom pod

. 1 bay leaf

. 1 sprig of fresh thyme

Method

1. Combine all the ingredients in a large saucepan and bring to the boil. Simmer gently for 15-20 minutes

2. Carefully pass the mulled wine through a fine sieve and into a jug. It is now ready to serve
