1red wine, 750 ml
1large orange, sliced
1lemon, peeled and sliced
1 whole all spice
Combine ingredients. Add 1/2 the bottle of wine, orange slices, lemon slices, sugar, whole cloves, whole nutmeg, cinnamon stick, star anise, allspice, bay leaf, and water to a large saucepan. Stir briefly to combine.
Simmer. Cook the mulled wine on medium-low heat until it just barely reaches a simmer. If you don't want the alcohol to boil off, avoid letting it bubble. Let the wine simmer for half an hour. Add in the remaining red wine. Reduce heat to low, cover, and let the wine simmer for at least 30 minutes or up to 3 hours.Optional: If you want to add your liquor of choice, add 1/2 cup along with the remaining red wine.
Strain. Using a fine-mesh strainer, remove all solid ingredients. Give the mulled wine a taste, and stir in extra sweetener if needed.
Serve. Serve warm, topped with your favorite garnishes.
