German Mulled White Wine
Recipe . . . See More 1 bottle dry white wine (750 ml) 2 cinnamon sticks 1 organic orange 1 organic lemon 2 tablespoons orange juice 5 cloves 3 tablespoons sugar (more to taste) 2 tablespoons rum (optional) star anise (optional) Instructions Wash and cut the orange and lemon. You can set aside a few slices for decoration. Add the wine, fruit slices, cinnamon, orange juice, cloves, sugar, rum (optional), and star anise (optional) to a medium-sized pot. Heat the wine on low heat for around 45 minutes. It's important that the wine doesn't come to a boil or else this will evaporate the alcohol. Give the mixture a stir occasionally. Before serving, taste the mulled wine and add more sugar to taste. Pour the mulled wine through a sifter before serving. You can garnish the wine glasses with those extra citrus slices and a cinnamon stick (optional) before serving. Notes Again, remember to not let the wine boil, or else you will boil off the alcohol content. A slow and steady warming is best!
