Easy Mulled Wine

Method

Get that festive feeling with this smooth mulled wine made with figs, sliced clementine and spices. Great for Christmas, or just to cosy up with in the cold winter months.

  • STEP 1

    Pour the red wine into a large saucepan. Add the clementine, cinnamon stick, star anise, dried figs, cloves and black peppercorns. Heat very gently until simmering, then turn off the heat.

  • STEP 2

    Fish out the whole spices and peppercorns with a spoon, then stir in the brandy. Ladle into mugs, or heatproof glasses to serve. You could drop in a slice of clementine to each.
