Mulled wine with jaggery

Posted by

There are numerous recipes for mulled wine online, and all of them are delicious. This one has jaggery, making it a tad bit healthy compared to the others. I prepare mulled wine with leftover wine.

I look forward to enjoying a glass of mulled wine over the weekend watching the latest action flick. Winter calls for indulgences like these. 

I prefer using Merlot for mulling. Warm spices like cinnamon, star anise, and cloves add to the taste.  I cannot imagine a mulled wine without an orange in it. The juice and zest of orange add a hint of sweetness and fruity flavor. The process needs time and care. Slow rolling simmer over a more extended period yields the best results. 

One bottle of wine is enough for two as it makes around 4-5 glasses (medium-sized). 

Which fruits and spices do you add to your pot of mulled wine?
