Mulled Wine

Serves 8-10


A wonderful combination of wine, sherry and cinnamon with a honey flavour traditionally served hot; an inexpensive wine will work just as well for this drink

  • 1 bottle red wine
  • 2 fl. oz. (50ml) sherry
  • 1 dessert apple
  • 8 cloves
  • 1 tsp. ground allspice
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • 2 tbsps. clear honey

    Cooking Instructions:
    1. Wash the apple then stud with cloves and bake for about 10 minutes
    2. Pour the wine and sherry into a large boiling pan then stir in allspice, nutmeg and honey
    3. Add the part-baked apple then bring to the boil while stirring occasionally
    4. Reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes
    5. Serve hot, straight from the pan
