In France it is known as Vin Chaud, locally we call it mulled wine and as the leaves are falling in Daylesford and the nights are getting cooler, we turn to a cup of cheeky mulled wine to warm our souls.
1 300ml btl DHMSco Orange juice
2 cups of red wine
2 tablespoons sugar
1 Cinnamon stick
1 star anise
In a saucepan, place all ingredients Place saucepan on a low heat (On top of a fire is perfect, if you have one).
Allow the aromatics to steep in the liquid at a mild simmer.
Once you are happy with the flavour, it's time to drink!
Serve in a wine glass with fresh orange.
