"My grandmother Margaret loved to entertain. This was one of her favorite beverages for cold, blustery, rainy days. We've served it through the years, usually during the holidays, and it's always a huge hit. If desired, serve flecked with nutmeg."

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Bring water to a boil in a saucepan; dissolve sugar in water. Stir in lemon quarter, cloves, and cinnamon into water; boil for 10 minutes. Strain and return to saucepan.
  2. Stir red wine into water-sugar mixture; heat until piping hot, but not boiling, about 5 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • To heat the wine without boiling it and to keep it hot, I often pour it into a slow cooker and add the strained spiced water there.

This is a duplicate of the Hot Mulled Wine recipe on this site. I made as written for it but decided to add star anise to this one. It was ok but better as written. This was heavy on the cloves ...
