Slow Cooker Mulled Wine
This lovely recipe for Crock-Pot Mulled Wine is perfect to serve at your next holiday party. But of course, remember this is an adult drink so keep it away from the kiddos!
This recipe starts off with a couple bottles of dry red wine. Use your favorite. I am not a big red wine drinker normally so I am not always on the up and up on what brands are good so I just ask the expert at my local wine store for something that would be nice. Because you are not drinking this wine straight up you can go with a cheaper brand of wine than something you would drink straight from the bottle.
To your wine you are going to add some light corn syrup and honey for sweetness. I like the mix of the two but if you avoid corn syrup in your diet you can replace the corn syrup with honey for a total of 1 cup honey. If you are OK with corn syrup, but don’t have any honey, you can go with 1 cup of corn syrup.
Then you add the spices and orange. Remove the zest of an orange with a vegetable peeler. Then add a cinnamon stick, some whole cloves and ground nutmeg and allspice.
If you can get whole nutmeg and allspice and grind it yourself in a spice or coffee grinder I think that is best as you get the more flavor that way over using the pre-ground stuff. But the pre-ground allspice and nutmeg will work just fine.
Then you just let your brew simmer away for two to three hours on low until hot and flavorful.
You can serve your mulled wine straight from the slow cooker or if you are serving at a fancier party I like to transfer it to a pre-warmed punch bowl and pretty crystal cups.
