Mulled Wine Spice

As it's nearly Christmas why not make your own mulling spices and mulled wine? This easy to make recipe is the perfect blend of spices for adding fab flavours and can be made in literally minutes.

Note: You'll need a piece of cheesecloth or muslin.

Ingredients: (makes about 8 tbsp)

8-10 whole star anise
2 tbsp allspice berries
1 tbsp brown sugar
10-15 green cardamom pods
2 tsp whole cloves
2 cinnamon sticks
1 medium sized orange
A small piece of fresh ginger root

tbsp = tablespoon
tsp = teaspoon


  • Zest the orange and grate about 4 teaspoons of ginger

  • Break up the cinnamon sticks and star anise

  • Add the cinnamon and star anise pieces and other dry ingredients to a bowl and combine

  • Once combined, spoon all the ingredients into the middle of an 8-10 inch cheesecloth square

  • Bring all the corners together and tie the ends together with some thread so you have a sealed parcel

That's all there is to it!

You add the ginger and orange only when making the drink.

Note: Just before using give the parcel a bash with something heavy. This will crack the ingredients and help release the flavours. (Wrap the parcel in a tea towel first so as to prevent it splitting)

The above recipe makes enough for 4 bottles of red wine. Reduce the amount you add to the parcel if you want to make less.

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.
