What is Mulled Wine?


Mulled wine is a traditional drink in Europe.  It's usually a red wine, infused with spices and fruit, and served warm.

Some recipes use a red wine and add vodka, rum, sherry, or brandy.  This simple mulled wine recipe slow cooker is great with red wine, but I sometimes add brandy, too.

What Wine is Best for Mulled Wine?


The best wine for mulled wine is the kind that you like to drink anyway.  You don't need to use an expensive wine because it will take on the flavor of the spices, which will enhance the taste.

I usually use Winking Owl wine from Aldi.  You can not beat the price, and the quality is excellent for the price.

Of course, you can use your favorite red wine or any wine that you'd prefer.

How Do You Serve Mulled Wine?


Mulled wine is typically served in a mug.  Since it is a hot drink, the handle helps you hold the cup without burning your hand.

Mulled wine can also be served in a glass cup with a handle in what is known as a mulled wine glass.

How Long Can You Keep Mulled Wine?


You can store leftover mulled wine in the fridge for three to five days.

Mulling Spices


If you want to make this even simpler, use premade mulling spices.  I posted a mulling spices recipe that you can use in place of the spices in this recipe.

Even though they are whole spices and not powdered, I highly recommend using a tea strainer or cheesecloth to make it easier to get them out.  I also use a spoon to stir the mulled wine while it's in the slow cooker to move the strainer around.

If you do use mulling spices, use 2 tablespoons for this recipe and omit the spices.  Or use the mulling spices and add orange slices for more of a fruity flavor.

Sweetener


You can use sugar, honey, or maple syrup.  I think the maple syrup gives it a more complex flavor, so that's what I use.

Brandy


The brandy is optional.  I don't always have it, so I don't usually add it.  You can if you want.

Does Mulled Wine Have Alcohol?


While it's true that cooking wine will evaporate the alcohol, but this won't get hot enough to burn off the alcohol.  It will loose a little bit, but please drink responsibly.

For a nonalcoholic drink, try this easy hot apple cider recipe in the slow cooker or make mulled apple cider.
