Time for mulled wine

I took this picture last Thursday, in the local restaurant above the main street. It is a picture of the mulled wine I had. I truly discovered mulled wine last year, when I had this particular one, which was completely out of this world. This one was decent, but not outstanding. In the weeks coming to Christmas, I will make it one of my new poisons. Not to the point of replacing beer, especially not since wintery ales can be delicious, but there is just something about warming up with mulled wine on a cold winter night. If you have any recipe to suggest, please tell me.

here is one that we like:

1 (750 ml) bottle red wine
1 orange, sliced
1/4 cup brandy (optional)
1/4 cup honey or sugar
8 whole cloves
2 cinnamon sticks
2 star anise

put this all together in a pan and bring to a boil then turn it to a simmer and let it cook for 5 minutes. Pour through a strainer and serve.

The simplest mulled wine is just heating up red wine, brown sugar to taste and a cinnamon stick, make sure not to heat above 75 C degrees!
