Fancy making your own mulled wine? Have a go at this recipe

One of my favourite things about Christmas is mulled wine.

I love Christmas food in general, especially when it contains lots of cinnamon and spices, but mulled wine is my absolute favourite.

Last Christmas ended up being a bit of a disaster in the mulled wine department as I managed to go the whole holiday season without getting a single glass of it.

I decided that this year, to make sure that I definitely get to have some that I'm going to make my own mulled wine, and if you would like to do the same have a look at this super simple recipe.

Ingredients

1 Orange
1 Lemon
1 Spoon of maple syrup or honey
1 Sachet of mulled wine mix or 2 cinnamon sticks

Cut both of them into small pieces with the skin still on it.
