I love this time of year and all of the festive food, drinks, and activities available. Europe is known for their amazing Christmas markets. It’s like a winter wonderland for people of all ages. And of course where there’s food, there’s drink. You’ll be hard pressed to find a Christmas market with no mulled wine, also known as ‘gluhwein’ (pronounced ‘glue wine’) in German-speaking countries.

mulled wine


This easy recipe can be whipped up in about 20 minutes. Transport yourself to Europe with this spiced wine and be sure to send me a postcard!


Bottle of your favorite red wine (I used Syrah)
4 cups Apple Cider
2 oranges
4 star anise
4 cinnamon sticks
4 whole cloves
1/4 cup honey

Pour the bottle of wine into your crock pot or slow cooker. Do not turn on yet.
Add all ingredients except the oranges.
Add the zest of 1/4 an orange to the pot.
Cut the orange into slices (about 6-8) and add them to the pot.
Turn the pot on low/medium for about 20 minutes to heat. Stir occasionally.
Pour in insulated mugs and enjoy! (You can filter the wine before enjoying if you don’t want the zest or other ingredients in your glasses.)
