In this, the last week of Aussie winter, indulge in one of the season’s finest beverages: mulled wine! Thanks to Maxwell & Williams for this week’s recipe.
Infused with aromatic spices and fragrant citrus peel, the combination of the warm, sweet and fruity wine is the perfect way to wind down on a cold night.
- In a saucepan, slowly bring to the boil 2 cups of water, 5-10 whole cloves, 2 sticks of cinnamon, ¼ cup caster sugar, 1 roughly grated nutmeg, and the grated rind of 1 orange.
- Once boiled, reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes.
- Add a bottle of fruity red wine, like Shiraz, and let mull for 5 minutes, taking care not to let the wine boil.
- Remove the wine from heat and strain before dividing among mugs. Serve immediately.
