Mulled Wine Sounds Like A Plan

Mulled Wine Sounds Like A Plan

OK, folks, it’s getting really cold here in the Northeast (like, really really cold❄️), and nothing says “stay warm, cozy, and happy” quite like a piping hot mug of spiced mulled wine. Whether you are craving a soothing nightcap, a romantic fireside cocktail or making plans for a seasonal centerpiece beverage for your next gathering, mulled wine is always a welcome treat. When prepared properly, the smell of this simmering delight will radiate throughout your space, tantalize your senses, and bring holiday joy to one and all.


Here are two easy to follow recipes, using a traditional Organic Mulling Spice Blend from Sullivan Street Tea & Spice Company. This blend consists of organic orange peel, organic cinnamon pieces, organic whole cloves, and organic allspice. Feel free to get creative with your own blend (ginger root and star of anise also taste great in mulling spice blends).


Mulled Wine Recipe (approximately 5 servings per 750 ml bottle)🍷

  • ¼ cup of honey or sugar (optional)
  • (2) tablespoons of mulling spices
  • (1) culinary cotton bag or cheese cloth

Remove culinary bag & pour into mugs. Add a thin slice of orange to each serving.
