Homemade Mulled Wine Mix

With this simple homemade recipe you'll never be short of a delicious glass of spiced wine! This traditional drink is typically served warm or hot and is a favourite especially around Christmas and New Year.

Makes about 6 tbsp

3-4 whole star anise
8-10 green cardamom pods
1 x 3 inch cinnamon stick
1 tbsp brown sugar
4 tsp allspice berries
2 tsp whole cloves
1 large orange
A piece of fresh ginger root
An 8-10 inch piece of cheesecloth

tbsp = tablespoon
tsp = teaspoon


    Note: I use 2 tablespoons of mix per 750ml bottle. So this recipe is enough for 3 bottles of wine.

  • Using your zester/grater, zest about 2-3 tablespoons worth of orange peel and slice about a tablespoon of ginger root. Add to a bowl

  • Break up the cinnamon stick and star anise and add the pieces to the bowl

  • Add the cardamom pods, cloves, allspice berries and sugar to the bowl as well and combine everything thoroughly

  • Once combined, spoon the mix into the cheesecloth square and, using thread, tie all the corners together so you end up with a parcel

That's all there is to it!

Note: See the link below for a variation of this recipe and how to make the actual drink

If you don't want enough mulling spices to make 3 bottles of wine as above, reduce the amount of each ingredient. Conversely, if you want to make more mulled wine, increase each ingredient quantity.

How to Toast and Grind

Dry toasting and grinding spices is the key to getting the most flavour out of your ingredients and into your home cooking...

Step 1: Add your whole spices to a dry pan over a low to medium heat and whilst stirring or shaking the pan, lightly toast them for a few minutes. When you can really smell the aromas and they start to darken, they're ready.

Step 2: Let them cool and then grind.

Step 3: For a finer blend, put them through a sieve before combining with any ground ingredients and herbs.
