- 1 bottle red wine (Veramar Rooster Red)
- 2 cups apple cider
- 1/2-cup sugar
- 4 sticks cinnamon
- 5 whole cloves
- 1 orange
Zest the orange, avoiding the white pith and put in Apple cider with the sugar. Put cinnamon and cloves in a cheesecloth bag and then into the Apple Cider. Bring this to a slow boil for 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Now add the wine. Add in the actual orange sliced up. Warm this on low heat for 40 minutes (do NOT boil). I keep the mulled wine going all day in a 32-cup electric perk coffee pot or large crock-pot.
Serve in a cup with a cinnamon stick or candy cane!
