Mulled Wine with Chili
Recipe for Mulled Wine with Pep
This recipe will make you twice as warm, the hot mulled wine together with the spiciness of the chili will warm all cold feet up again.
750 ml dry red wine (e.g. Dornfelder)
1 piece of lemon peel
1 piece of orange peel
1 Star anise
1 small cinnamon stick
3 allspice corns
2 cardamom pods, slightly pressed
½ vanilla pods, slit and scraped
1-3 dried chillies, depending on taste and desired spiciness
If you don’t have all the spices at home or do not wish to buy them individually, you can use our Glühwein Punch Spice which is a ready made mix of cinnamon, orange peel, star anise, cloves and ginger (1 tbsp. per 750 ml).
Carefully peel the orange and lemon with a knife, taking care not to include any pith, as this will make the mulled wine bitter.
Put the red wine and the spices in a pot and heat them slowly, don’t boil them. Shortly before the boiling point, remove the pot from the hob and let it stand for approx. 2 hours so that the spices can infuse. Then strain the spices, reheat and serve.
