Mulled wine to serve
I usually make mine in a crock pot and keep it on low until my friends arrive& this is also great for Christmas&
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 sticks cinnamon
1 orange, peel and juice
1 bottle dry red wine&
For the Crockpot combine water, sugar, cinnamon, cloves and orange juice. Simmer 2-3 minutes.
Add orange peel and wine. Let sit warming over low heat for 30 minutes.
Don't allow it to boil or youll cook the alcohol away.
Serve in warm mugs, garnish with a cinnamon stick&a slice of Barmbrack or warm Boxty cake.
