How to Fix Mulling Spice Recipe - The Drink
Basic, common procedure to prepare a mulled wine is mainly uncomplicated: combine 1/4 cup of the blend with two cups of wine (red or white!), apple cider or juice, cranberry juice, or other beverages to your liking. When the recipe does not specify sugar, it is facile to add it to beverage after, according to individual tastes, or swap it with brown sugar, honey, molasses, sweetener etc; yet, a good , yummy mulled wine should be sweet. Heat and simmer on stove for at least twenty minutes until the spices infuse the liquid but - important! - don't let the wine boil. Occasionally gently stir the mix, then serve warm to moderately hot.
Do not get daunted if you don't like it straight off - experiment, test and re-test! Try several diverse combinations, alter quantities, ingredients and/or additions, until you are sure your mulled wine is darn good.
To prevent sediments in the cup, you might want to filter the drink through the strainer. Moreover, you can wrap spice mixture in the bag, made of four inch square of muslin with gathered corners, securely tied.
