Warm Up With Healthy Mulled Wine This Winter

The cold-weather drink you need to try!

Obsessed with the warm wine you get once a year at the holiday markets downtown? Don’t worry, we got you. You might know this spiced wine by a few other names such as glühwein or glögg, but for us, we called it Fireside Spice Mulled Wine. This delightful heated drink can be made to serve a whole guest list for any  party you may have coming up, just double the recipe!

This recipe is a great healthy alternative to the traditional mulled wine recipe. With mixing in Tiesta Tea’s Fireside Spice Tea (unbrewed), the hibiscus and cinnamon will spice up your mulled wine in a functional way and add that Christmas-time aroma.

Recipe yields 5 8oz glasses

Mulled Wine Ingredients:

  • 40oz of a red blend wine
  • 1 cup of Fireside Spice loose tea (not brewed)
  • 5 Cinnamon Sticks
  • 5 Orange slices for garnish

Directions:

  1. Pour 40oz of wine into a crockpot (or for an alcohol-free alternative use apple cider)
  2. Turn crockpot on high heat
  3. Put 1 cup of Fireside Spice loose tea into tea filters or tea balls. You can use a cheesecloth or a closed strainer if you do not have a tea filter or tea ball.
  4. Immerse filled tea filters/balls into the crockpot. The tea will infuse the wine with a taste of hibiscus, cinnamon, and apple.
  5. Keep the mulled wine warm in the crockpot on high for 30 minutes
  6. Use a ladle to pour into glasses and garnish with a cinnamon stick and an orange slice
  7. Keep leftover mulled wine at medium heat

You can buy Fireside Spice and other Tiesta Tea loose tea blends in Market Street stores and on tiestatea.com.
