Natural Mulled Wine Recipe

Mulled wine is the Christmas party drink - which is why we've found the ultimate natural mulled wine recipe. A little less guilt-inducing than traditional mulled wine, but still delicious and fabulously festive! 


  • 3 oranges
  • Peel from 1 lemon, cut into strips 
  • Peel from 1 lime, cut into strips 
  • 2tbsp honey 
  • 3 cloves
  • 1 cinnamon stick 
  • 2 bay leaves 
  • 1 tsp grated nutmeg 
  • 1 vanilla pod, cut in half and deseeded
  • 2 star anise 
  • 2 x 750ml bottles of natural red wine 


  1. First, juice the orange and cut its peel into slices 
  2. Add the citrus peel, honey, cloves, cinnamon stick, bay leaves and nutmeg in a large saucepan
  3. Add the vanilla pod and orange juice, then pour in some of the wine - enough to cover the ingredients
  4. Add the star anise and the remainder of the red wine
  5. Increase the heat to make sure the mulled wine is warmed through. This should take 3-4 minutes. Then serve!
