Mulled wine is the hit at every Christmas market. However, homemade it often tastes better and can be enjoyed throughout the winter. The best part about DIY is that you know exactly what you have in the jar.
Whoever still reaches for the dubious ready-made mulled wine from the supermarket shelves with this simple recipe, we can no longer help.
For homemade mulled wine
For your mulled wine, you should go for a strong, fruity but not too woody red wine. Avoid cheap wines from discount stores and rather go for an artisanal wine in the basic segment between 6.00 and 9.00 euros a bottle.
Mulled wine should never be heated above 70 to 75 °C. The alcohol contained in the mulled wine evaporates at around 78 °C and some of the spices also suffer from excessive heat and release bitter substances into the mulled wine.
