Mulled Wine Cooking Tips:

I use ruby port because it’s naturally sweet and removes the need of adding sugar to my mulled wine. For this recipe I used a bottle of Dow’s Fine Ruby Port.

Warm the mulled wine slowly over medium-low heat. If it gets to a boil the alcohol will cookout.

Crockpot/Slowcooker: Turn the heat to low on the crockpot, add all ingredients, and cook for 2-3 hours.

Remove the peel before juicing the orange.

Yes, there’s a small amount of salt. That’s just to enhance all the spice’s flavor.

If you want to make a non-alcoholic version. Use organic cranberry juice.

Can you make ahead?

Fridge: Mulled Wine: Mulled wine can be made three days in advance.

Reheating: Mulled Wine: Turn on heat to medium, add wine and reheat for 10 minutes or less. *Depends on how much you’re reheating.
