1 bottle red wine
60 gm brown or white sugar
1 cinnamon stick
grated nutmeg…. teaspoon or two teaspoons
1 orange sliced
1 bay leaf
60 ml rum (optional)
Heat wine with orange slices, spices and sugar until sugar dissolved. Add rum if using. Strain. Pour into pre-heated wine glasses. (Slowly warm the glasses under the hot water tap so they do not shatter. Or use mugs.). Drink. Repeat.
Alternatively… buy this from the Co-op. Currently 2 bottles for £6.00. This is the BEST pre-mixed mulled wine I have ever tasted, and I have tasted alot of mulled wine in my time.
