Winter Warmer Mulled Wine or Virgin Mulled Cider
Spokesperson: Jo Webber
It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and tis the season for lashings of tidings of comfort and joy – and maybe a little tipple here and there too… There is nothing quite like a warming cup of mulled wine to thaw your bones on a cold winter’s day.
Pukka’s brand-new organic Winter Warmer tea is just the tonic – packed with festive flavours of cinnamon, clove, ginger star anise and orange, it truly is merriment in a mug. It is scrumptious brewed simply as a tea but can also work wonders stewed into something a little stronger too….
Winter Warmer Mulled Wine
- 4 persons
Rejoice in the warming and uplifting flavours of festivity in Pukka’s Winter Warmer. For this recipe, we are using organic merlot (as it’s the wine highest in antioxidants) but if you are avoiding alcohol, this is also delicious as a virgin mulled ‘cider’ – just swap out the organic merlot for organic apple juice. Comfort and joy, here we come.
We recommend trying to source organic ingredients for the below where you can – for your health and that of the planet’s too.
Five Pukka Winter Warmer tea bags
750ml merlot (or 750ml apple juice)
Slices of lemon
Three tbsp maple syrup or to taste
Pour your merlot into a large saucepan.
Add the sliced lemon to the wine.
Cut two oranges in half and press cloves into the skin before adding to the pan.
Add five tea bags of Pukka’s Winter Warmer to the pan along with some grated nutmeg.
Warm the mixture gently making sure that it does not boil.
Add three tbsp of maple syrup and gently heat for 15 minutes.
Ladle into four glasses and say cheers to the festive season!
