About this recipe
Mulled red wine sangria is winter’s answer to our favorite summer drink, our very own red wine sangria recipe.
It features similar tones of red wine and citrus, only it is complimented with some warmth, both in temperature and spices.
Mulled wine is a wine that is heated and infused with spices. It typically is red wine and different regions of the world have different versions of mulled red wine.
What’s in this Mulled Red Wine Sangria
- Red wine
- Orange juice
- Star Anise
The beautiful thing about this mulled red wine recipe is that you can add whatever sounds good to you. If you don’t have brandy on hand, skip it!
No whole cloves in your spice rack? Try a pinch of ground cloves or maybe some nutmeg.
You can put this together in just 10 minutes, or make it in a slow cooker and have a party in a crock pot!
We were given these beautiful double walled mugs from Joy Jolt. They are microwave and dishwasher safe and you can order them gift wrapped for this holiday season!
For Christmas Eve, we thought Santa might want to wash down his Christmas Cookies with a swig or two of this version of our Mulled Sangria; it has fresh Wisconsin cranberries in the mix! See more cranberry recipes on Platter Talk.
