- 1 bottle of red wine (I like American Zinfandel)
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup brandy
- 2 TSP pre-mixed mulling spice, or see recipe below.
- Wrap in cheesecloth and tie with a cotton string:
Heat wine and sugar over medium to med-high heat until just to simmer, add mulling spice (use cheese cloth or a mulling spice ball). Do a taste test after a couple minutes, when it’s the level of spice you want, take them out. The wine should not come above a simmer...add brandy...return to a simmer and reduce the heat to low. Note: boiling = bitter
