A pot of mulled wine simmering on our wood stove is such a treat!
Our wood stove came in handy this past weekend when a nor’easter hit Vermont hard with extensive power outages. We were out from Friday to Sunday evening. Other people are still without power but we see hardworking crews out there and appreciate their efforts. It was quite a storm.
Back to mulled wine…
Below is the recipe included in my Swift River Valley novella, “Christmas at Carriage Hill.” By the way, it’s just $1.99 in digital and now available in audio. And A Knights Bridge Christmas is on sale this month for $1.99.
2 bottles of dry red wine
1-2 orange(s), sliced into “circles”
1/3 cup fresh-squeezed lemon juice
1/4 cup brandy
1/4-1/2 cup sugar (to taste)
8 whole cloves
2 cinnamon sticks
2 nutmegs, cracked into pieces
Combine all the ingredients in a large pot and heat on low. Do not boil. Optional: tie cloves, nutmeg and cinnamon sticks in a cheesecloth bag. Serve warm and enjoy!
