Homemade Mulling Spices Recipe

On these cold winter nights what could be nicer than a warm glass of red wine?

Ingredients: (makes about 8 tbsp)

2 tbsp star anise (cracked)
1½ tbsp allspice berries
15-20 green cardamom pods
2 tbsp fresh ginger (grated)
1 tsp whole cloves
2 cinnamon sticks (broken into smaller pieces)
Zest of 1 orange
½ tsp brown sugar (optional)

tbsp = tablespoon
tsp = teaspoon


Combine all the dry spices and optional sugar and place in a cheesecloth square. Bring the corners together and tightly tie the ends with cotton so you have a sealed parcel.

Mulled Wine Recipe


1 bottle red wine
2 tbsp mulling spices in cheesecloth parcel


Slowly heat your bottle of wine to a simmer, add the mulling spices parcel, fresh ginger and orange and simmer for 20-25 minutes. Scoop out the spices and ginger and drink hot or warm. Enjoy!

If you want to spice up more than a single bottle of wine increase the quantities in your cheesecloth parcel accordingly. I generally use 2 tbsp of mulled spice per bottle.
