Homemade Mulled Wine

Something Delicious to keep You Warm


Here in Germany, Mulled Wine is an essential part of Christmas. If you have been to a German Christmas market, you know it is filled with the scent of a warm Mulled Wine. However, I know that not in every country Mulled Wine is something available in the shops and so I have decided to share this recipe, so that we can all enjoy this delicious and warming drink during the holiday season.

This Homemade Mulled Wine is packed with citrus flavors and beautiful Christmas aroma. It fills your house with a wonderful Christmas feeling and the scent of Christmas. 

You can make this Mulled Wine beforehand and then store it in the fridge for a day or two. Just warm it up a little before serving and enjoy.

Stay Warm Lovelies!

Homemade Mulled Wine

Something Delicious to keep You Warm


  • 1 Organic orange

  • 1 Organic lemon

  • 1 Organic mandarin

  • 1 Organic apple

  • 750ml Red wine

  • 2 Cinnamon sticks

  • 4-5 Star Anis "Stars"

  • 4-5 Cloves

  • 50g Sugar

  • Handful of dry cranberries


  1. Wash the fruits well. Slice orange, lemon and mandarin. Core the apple and cut into fours and then half those fours to get 8 pieces.

  2. Pour the wine into a medium pot (about 3 liters). Add cinnamon sticks, star anis, cloves, sugar and cranberries.

  3. Add all of the fruits into the pot. Squeeze the juices from orange, lemon and mandarin while adding them into the wine.

  4. Warm the wine over medium heat for 10 minutes. Be careful so that the mixture doesn´t boil.

  5. Remove from heat and allow to rest for an hour.

  6. Remove the fruits and give the citrus fruits a good squeeze again to get the juices out. If you don´t like it very sour, then don´t squeeze the lemon at this point.

  7. Serve the mulled wine warm. Decorate with fruit if you wish.
