Mulled Wine
Author: Rebecca
Ingredients
  • 2 Bottles Red Wine
  • 2 Cups Orange Juice
  • 1 Orange, sliced into four thick slices
  • 50 Cloves (or so)
  • 4-5 Cinnamon Sticks
Instructions
  1. Combine the wine and juice in a pot and simmer over low heat.
  2. Poke the cloves into the white part of the orange slices on both the top and bottom side.
  3. Add the orange slices and cinnamon sticks to the wine.
  4. After mulled wine is hot (not boiling), remove the pot from the stove and place it on a trivet in an open area.
  5. Atop the pot, balance a metal “stand” for setting the sugar cone onto (metal cooling rack works, so does a pair of metal shish kebab skewers).
  6. Carefully place the sugar cone onto the stand.
  7. With a ladle, slowly pour the Bacardi 151 over the sugar cone until it is fully covered.
  8. Then light the cone and enjoy the blue flames that dance from the cone.
  9. As the sugar and rum melt, they caramelize and drip into the wine, adding to the already amazing mulled wine flavor.
Notes
I use a mid-priced Cabernet or Shiraz wine for this recipe.
