Easy as Bonfire Night Mulled Wine

In honour of the best night of year - Bonfire night (!!!), here is a super-easy mulled wine recipe. Once you make it yourself I promise you will never buy it again because it's so so easy.

For two people all you need is:
A bottle of red wine (doesn't even have to be a good one)
2 tbsp honey (or more to sweeten)
1 handful of cloves
3 oranges
2 cinnamon sticks
Nutmeg (or grated)

Multiply as needed.

First heat the wine on it's own for a few minutes on low. Then juice the oranges, leaving one half in tact. Add the juice to the wine and continue to heat on low.

Next up are the cloves. Grab a fistful and rather than having them float around and you having to collect them later, stick them in the half orange like this.

Add to the wine.

Next add the 2 tbsp of honey. I find 2 tbsp enough for me personally, but add as much as you like because mulled wine is typically quite sweet.

Grate in the nutmeg and add your cinnamon sticks.

That's it! Cover it and leave on low for at least 30 minutes to let the flavours mingle. Then garnish each glass with a cinnamon stick and a slice of orange.

I hope you like it! This is the same spicing I would use for a hot toddy (replace the wine with cider and add a shot of brandy/whisky per person) or you could do the same for hot-spiced apple juice if you didn't want to drink.

The mugs are these ones btw,
