Mulled Wine

Mulled Wine


1 serving = 1 glass / 200ml

  • 1 bottle red wine
  • 60g/2oz demerara sugar
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • 1 orange, halved
  • 1 dried bay leaf
  • 60ml/2fl oz sloe or damson gin (optional)
  • Nutilis Powder
  • Method

      1. Pour the wine into a saucepan with the orange, sugar, bayleaf and spices.
      2. Heat gently until the sugar has dissolved. Taste to see if you want the wine sweeter, if so, add more sugar to taste. Do not boil as it will burn off the alcohol.
      3. Turn off the heat, stir in the sloe or damson gin if you are using it.
      4. Pass through a strainer to remove any lumps.
      5. Allow to cool for 8 minutes. Then add the recommended number of scoops as per the table below.
      6. If desired, drinks may be heated in a microwave after the addition of Nutilis Powder.
      7. Serve in a heatproof glass and enjoy!

    Tips from the chef on mixing hot drinks: For optimal results and safety, please allow hot drinks to cool for 8 minutes prior to thickening. The use of the shaker is not recommended for hot drinks. However, if using the shaker for hot drinks, please make sure the lid is securely tightened, shake lightly and remove the lid immediately after shaking. Let the prepared liquid stand for a few minutes to achieve the desired thickness. Do not add additional Nutilis during standing time as the liquid is continuing to thicken. If desired or needed, drinks may be heated in the microwave after the addition of Nutilis. If reheating thickened hot drinks, please ensure they are reheated immediately.
