  • Small pinch crushed coriander seeds

  3. Now add your spices, honey and sugar.
  4. Give everything a stir.
  5. Place a lid on the pan and slowly bring to the boil over a medium heat.
  6. Allow to simmer for 3-4 minutes and then remove from the heat.
  7. Leave the lid on the pan and allow the mulled wine to stand for around 5 minutes to allow all your flavours to infuse.
  8. Now take a cup, place a sieve over it, and ladle your mulled wine into the cup.

The brandy / rum is optional but adds extra heat and spicy flavour to your mulled wine. Of course measurement are optional and you can add more or less, depending on your preferences.
If you don't have a cupboard filled with spices, you can use a level teaspoon of allspice instead of the cinnamon and cloves.
