Deliver Ingredients

Ingredients

  • One 750-milliliter bottle red wine (claret is a traditional selection)
  • 1/4 Cup brandy
  • 1 orange, its peel zested in strips, its juice reserved
  • 1/8 Cup honey
  • 8 whole cloves
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 4 star anise

Directions

Combine all the ingredients in a non-aluminum (preferably enameled) saucepan, and warm over medium-high heat, watching carefully — you do not want to allow the mixture to boil, only warm until steam begins to evaporate. Reduce the heat to low, and continue warm (without allowing the mulled wine to simmer), for at least 20 minutes. Strain if you desire — although the bits of floating spices can be a nice touch in the glass — and serve quickly.

Wine Shopping Tip

Choose a wine that you would drink. If you wouldn't drink it on its own, you shouldn't cook with it.

Wine Cooking Tip

After cooking steak, you can use red wine to de-glaze the pan.
