For this Homemade Mulle Wine “YUM” you need

  • 1,1/2 Bottels of Red wine

(from what I experienced, It DEOS matter which red wine you use! I use CHIANTI. Its obviously Italian and you don’t need the most expensive wine, however DONT use cooking wine. Take one you would want to drink)

  • 200g Caster Sugar
  • 2 Orange
  • 1 Lime
  • 1 Lemon
  • 8 Star Anise
  • 8 Cloves
  • 2 Bay Leaves
  • 1 Vanilla Pod
  • 1 Cinnamon Stick
  • 1 Nutmeg (1-2 TS)
  • 4 Juniper Seeds
  • 2 Sips of RUM

Add the Sugar to a pan. Peel off 1 big Zest of the Orange, of the Lime and the Lemon. Twist it and add to the sugar. Add the Juice of the used Orange to the mixture. (The pan is still cold.) Add the Cloves, the Bay Leaves, The Nutmeg and the Juniper Seeds. Break the Cinnamon Stick and add it as well. Scrape out the vanilla seeds and add the seeds and the vanilla pod to the mixture. Add 1/2 Bottle of the red wine and simmer for 5 min until the sugar is dissolved. Now bring it to a boil to create a syrup (8-10min). Now add an additional Bottle of Red wine. Add the Star Anis. Simmer for 3 minutes and take it off the heat. Add 2 Sips of Rum (this is optional) and add the Slices of 1 Orange and maybe half a lemon.
