We love the holidays for the same reasons everyone does. One of the nice things about the wintry weather is Mulled Wine - it warms you inside and out and gets you into the spirit of the season. Here's our recipe, just in time for the holidays.
1 bottle of dry red wine (we use a Bordeaux)
½ bottle of dry white wine (we use a Sauvignon Blanc)
Juice from ½ orange
Zest from the ½ orange
Peeled, sliced fresh ginger - about a 1" (3 cm) finger-sized piece
2 cinnamon sticks
¼ teaspoon of ground cloves
2 tablespoons or to taste of agave nectar
Remove zest from the orange and set aside.
Juice the orange into a saucepan.
Add the wine, zest, ginger, cinnamon, cloves and 2 tablespoons of agave nectar; stir to mix.
Heat on medium low heat until hot - not boiling. Reduce the heat to low for an hour or more to allow the favors to release and blend. Add agave nectar until desired level of sweetness is reached.
Serve hot and enjoy!
