‘Tis the season to be jolly, and in this part of the world we do that with a cup of zesty, spicy, warm mulled wine when winter comes knocking on our door.


  • 1 bottle red wine
  • 2 organic oranges, cut into slices
  • 1 organic lemon, cut into slices
  • ½ a fresh lemon, juiced 
  • ½ c.  orange juice 
  • ¼ c. sugar
  • 8 dried cardamom pods
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 6 whole cloves
  • 2 star anise


  • Throw all ingredients into a saucepan and bring to a boil for about 1 minute. 
  • Then reduce heat to low and allow wine to simmer for roughly 10-15 minutes. 
  • Serve each cup with an orange slice and enjoy. Merry Christmas!
