Easy Citrus Mulled Wine
A warm drink is the perfect way to ring in the new year. This delicious Easy Citrus Mulled Wine uses lots of staple pantry ingredients and changes up a boring glass of red wine!
- 1 750mL bottle dry red wine
- 1/2 cup brandy
- 1/2 cup dark brown sugar, packed
- 4 small oranges (or 2 large oranges), juiced
- 1 grapefruit, sliced thin
- 1 lemon, sliced thin
- 5-6 cinnamon sticks
In a stockpot, add the wine, brandy, brown sugar, and orange juice. Turn the heat to medium-low and allow the mixture to warm. Dissolve the sugar, but keep the temperature low to not boil the liquid.
Once the sugar is dissolved, add the oranges, grapefruit, and lemon slices along with the cinnamon sticks.
Allow the flavors to marry for about 10 minutes before enjoying.
To serve, ladle some mulled wine into a mug or stemless wine glass.
For the non-alcoholic version:
750mL concord grape juice
½ cup spiced apple cider
3 oranges, sliced thin
1 grapefruit, sliced thin
1 lemon, sliced thin
5-6 cinnamon sticks
Combine all ingredients in the same manner as the original recipe. Serve warm in mugs or stemless wine glasses.
