Mulled Wine Recipe

Mulled wine recipe

Mulled wine, or cold weather sangria as I like to think of it, is a festive, warm drink that is perfect to sip while sitting next to a warm fire. Below is a simple recipe that can be whipped up in a jiffy. However, it does take a couple hours for the flavors to steep in a crock pot. If you’re feeling creative, you can add cranberries, apples, and orange peels for extra garnish.


2 bottles Cabernet Sauvignon
1 cup orange juice
2 oranges, quartered with peels left on
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 tsp allspice
1/4 tsp cinnamon
4 cinnamon sticks
4 whole cloves


Mix all ingredients in a crock pot and warm on high for 2 hours. Serve warm in mugs and garnish with cinnamon sticks, if desired. Serves 6-8.

  • I make this but my version is kid friendly – just substitute 2 bottles of Old Orchard Juice ( we like the cranberry raspberry & cherry) for the wine and omit the sugar.
