Mulled Wine

Guten morning friends,

Hope your Monday was slightly less hectic than mine :)

I honestly did not even have time to get coffee yesterday - because I am disorganized and cannot seem to manage to make coffee before getting to work - and things started as soon as I walked in the door at work.

But, enough about me, and more about a delicious holiday drink that you should all make ASAP.

I had a little dinner party with my roomies and some close friends this weekend, and decided to make an attempt at a festive holiday drank. I remember tasting mulled wine for the first time last year and thought it was the bomb-diggity, so I busted out the cinnamon sticks and spiced rum and gave it a go!

Not to toot my own horn, but it turned out freaking DELICIOUS! And seriously the easiest thing to prepare. Although slightly dangerous. I wouldn't suggest having more than a glass or two, it catches up with you quickly! [Momster & Popster - earmuffs]

Strain the oranges out for an extra treat!

Anywho, let me know if you try it out! It is guaranteed to take any holiday party to the next level awesomeness ;)

Mulled Wine
Inspired by the Skinny Confidential’s recipe


1 bottle red wine
8-10 cloves
3 cinnamon sticks
Zest of an orange
Peeled orange, cut in chunks
1 tsp all spice
60ml spiced rum


Add all ingredients to a large pot and put on low to medium heat, making sure it does not boil.

Let concoction warm for about 20-30 minutes, or until flavours are blended.

Strain and serve.


  1. Can't wait to try it, sounds delish! What kind of red wine did you use?

    1. It is ridiculously delicious. I used a cheap bottle of Cabernet-Sauvignon, but Merlot would be a good choice too :)
