Mulled Wine Recipe

March 3 is Mulled Wine Day! If you're making a trip to the Tasting Room, we offer a convenient bagged mulling spice blend, but it's easy enough to prepare your own mulling spice at home: 

1 bottle The Black Dog®
2 cups apple cider
1/4 cup honey or 1/2 cup brown sugar
1 bag mulling spices (available in the Tasting Room)
​ or use:​
2 cinnamon sticks
1 orange, zested and juiced
4 whole cloves
3 star anise
4 oranges, peeled, for garnish
​other options:​
allspice
cardamom pods
nutmeg
 

Combine the cider, wine, honey, cinnamon sticks, zest, juice, cloves and star anise in a large saucepan, bring to a boil and simmer over low heat for 10 minutes. Pour into mugs, add an orange peel to each and serve.

Celebrate our last chilly days in good health and great spirits!
