  1. Yummy! Well I may agree with the excessive sugar content. But it looks intoxicatingly delicious! I would like to try a sample.

  2. So much sugar , and different spices. Easier just adding black current and lemon and orange…and 1 Cinnamon stick. Perfecto

  3. No wonder mine tasted like methylated spirits mixed with fire wood. I didn't brink the first bit to the book or use enough caster sugar. I will try this recipe tomorrow m.

  4. This is a great looking tutorial. I don't know where I'm going to get star anise or vanilla pods, or for that matter whole nutmeg, and you didn't tell whether it should be sweet or dry red wine. But if I could figure it out, I'd be tempted to try it. It probably knocks you on your ass with all that spiced rum, too!

  5. Wow, I was just looking for a nice recipe for mulled wine and here it is! Perfect, I wish all recipes on all food channels were organized in such an awesome way! Thanks fore this recipe! 🙂

  6. I've tried this recipe today with Shiraz and spiced rum. Somehow it turned out to be quite bitter and the smell of the spice was too strong. I wonder if it's caused by the choice of red wine. I'm gonna try to use merlot next time and less spice. Does anyone have the same problem?

  7. oh my gooodd, we drink mullled wine every single year here, its sold everywhere around the country, but i think this may be the absolute BEST version ive ever seen!
