  • 1 litre red wine
  • 1 large orange juiced
  • 1 pomegranate juiced
  • 1 dessert spoon honey
  • 1 dessert spoon brown sugar
  • 50 ml brandy or dark rum - optional, but highly recommended!
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 3 cloves crushed
  • 1 pinch coriander seeds crushed


  • Pour the full bottle of wine into a large saucepan.
  • Add the orange juice and the pomegranate juice.
  • Now add your spices, honey and sugar.
  • Give everything a stir.
  • Place a lid on the pan and slowly bring to the boil over a medium heat.
  • Allow to simmer for 3-4 minutes and then remove from the heat.
  • Leave the lid on the pan and allow the mulled wine to stand for around 5 minutes to allow all your flavours to infuse.
  • Now take a cup, place a sieve over it, and ladle your mulled wine into the cup.
  • Don't forget to serve some to your friends, too!


  • The brandy / rum is optional but adds extra punch and spicy flavour to your mulled wine. Of course, measurements are flexible so 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.
  • Drink responsibly!
