Spice Up Your Holiday


December 21st 2018

Have you ever wondered how to stay warm walking around those chilly German Christmas Markets? The answer is Mulled Wine! Traditionally called Glühwein, this is a spiced red wine served warm. Think, adult hot cocoa. Serving mulled wine at a Holiday Party is one way to perfectly capture the winter season. Your friends and family will love grabbing a Christmas mug from your cabinet and sipping on this delcious & warm treat. We suggest usuing a full-body red table wine. The spices added in will impart a ton of great flavor into the wine, so you do not want to use a light wine because its delicate flavors will be overpowered. Here is a recipie we love from Kitchn!

Mulled Wine Grocery List:
1 Bottle Dry Red Table Wine (Cape May Red!)
1/2 Orange
3/4 Cup Water
1/4 Cup Granulated Sugar 
20 Whole Cloves
2 Cinnamon Sticks
2 Whole Star Anise 
Amaretto for serving (optional)

Preperation:

  1. Zest the orange in wide strips, set aside. Juice the orange and set the juice aside.

  2. Combine the water and sugar in a saucepan and boil until the sugar has completely dissolved. Reduce the heat and add the cloves, cinnamon, star anise, orange zest, and orange juice. Simmer about 1 minute.

  3. Reduce the heat further and add the wine. Let simmer for at least 20 minutes or up to a few hours. Never let it boil! The trick is to keep it warm. 

  4. Strain and serve in mugs, adding a shot amaretto and garnishing with leftover orange peel or spices! Cheers! 

For those who are more partial to the sweeter white wines, we have a spin on the traditional recipie for you- Mulled Apple Wine!  

Mulled Apple Wine Grocery List:
1 Bottle Isaac Smith Apple
1 Large Orange
2 Cinnamon Sticks
2 Whole Cloves

Preperation: 

  1. Zest orange into wide strips, set aside. Juice orange into slow cooker or saucepan. 
  2. Pour wine into slow cooker or saucepan and add reminding ingredients. 
  3. Let simmer for 30 minutes or up to a few hours. 
  4. Strain and serve! You can add a shot of Fireball Whiskey or use any remainig spices/orange zest to garnish.
