Bastille Festival’s recipe for a perfect spiced mulled wine
Ingredients (12 servings)
- 20 whole cloves
- 2 tangerines, clementines, or small oranges
- 2 750-ml bottles Merlot
- 3 cups fresh apple cider
- 8 Lady apples (optional)
- 2 cinnamon sticks plus 8 for garnish (garnish optional)
- 2 green cardamom pods, cracked
- 2 cups tawny Port
Press stem (pointed) end of 10 cloves into each tangerine, piercing through the skin. Place tangerines, wine, cider, Lady apples (if using), 2 cinnamon sticks, and cardamom pods in a large pot. Bring to a bare simmer over medium-low heat; cook gently for 20 minutes. DO EARLIER: Mulled wine can be made 2 hours ahead of time. Cover and let stand at room temperature. Rewarm gently over medium-low heat before continuing.
Stir in Port. Divide among glasses; garnish each with a cinnamon stick and an apple or orange slice, if desired.
