Mulled wine

December for me is cosy evenings with friends and family, baking, planning a getaway, listening to Christmas carols, going to Christmas parties and Christmas brunches. One of the must-haves in all this fairy tale is mulled wine. Drinking it from a pretty cup while blogging or reading a magazine is pure bliss. There are probably as many ways of making it as there are families.

This is my recipe:

Sugar (depending on how sweet you want it)

1-2 tea spoons of dried cloves

1-2 cinnamon sticks (or 1 tea spoon of cinnamon powder)

2-3 slices of orange/mandarine (with peel)

Warm up just under boiling point. Serve in pretty mugs. Voilà!
