Friday's Makes, Bakes & Learns #11

A few Fridays ago hubby and me went to the German Christmas market to sample some Glühwein and traditional German food.  (It was a bit of a grey day but we still had fun!)

You've guess it! My Friday's makes is mulled wine - yum!

1 bottle of drinkable red wine
60g/2oz castor sugar 
Orange - one half studded with cloves the other sliced
cinnamon sticks
large glug of brandy

Put the wine, sugar, orange studded with cloves and cinnamon sticks in a pan to gently heat.  Just before serving pour in the brandy and put orange slices in the glass before pouring over the hot wine.


  1. God I love mulled wine but I'm super lazy and use the mulling 'teabags'. I've just realised that makes me sound super lazy!

    1. So yummy isn't it and I love the scent of it wafting through the house! I've used them too - they are good :) x

  2. Mmm what a great recipe, love mulled wine! x
