We are very very pleased to finally be able to offer the jewel in our Christmas selection crown, our very own totally plastic free Mulled Wine Spice mixes! Get that wine simmering on the hob for those wintery nights and a totally sustainable Christmas!
Each mix contains cinnamon sticks, cardamom pods, cloves, and star anise. A 20g pack is the exact right ratio for one bottle of red wine to be mulled to perfection, but you might not want to just mull one, of course!
Our suggested recipe is as follows -
1. Add one bottle of red wine to a large saucepan along with an equal amount of water.
2. Add 20g of your mulled wine spice mix (approx 2 cinnamon sticks, 2 star anise, and 5 cardamom pods and cloves), one large orange zested and squeezed into the wine mixture, and sugar to taste. Make sure to stir your mixture to dissolve the sugar properly.
3. Simmer your mulled wine mix down on a low-medium heat for approximately 15 minutes until the spices have infused. Taste it periodically to check the sweetness levels are to your taste and don't be afraid to add a little more sugar if necessary!
4. Remove the spices from your mixture once its warm and delicious and serve with a slice of orange in each glass - enjoy!
