Blogmas 3: Mulled Wine with Apple Stars

Is there anything more festive than a cup of warm spicy mulled wine? Today I'm going to share a mulled wine recipe and a serving idea with you. Perfect addition to a Christmas party or just as an afternoon treat in front of the fireplace!

I was browsing through Pinterest the other day, and saw a similar serving idea and simply had to try it for myself. In December, we often make mulled wine at home, so I decided to share the recipe and the serving idea with you. Let's get started!

What you will need:
-wine
-cinnamon
-cloves
-lemon peels
-apple
-orange
-cookie cutters

Measure the wine and mix it with water, depending how strong you want it to be (I usually add 1 cup of water per 2 cups of wine). Warm it up and add some freshly squeezed orange juice. Add some cinnamon, and lemon peels to the wine. 
While the wine is warming up, cut up the apple and use the cookie cutters to create different shapes. When you are happy with the shapes of the apple, stick some cloves in them, and then add them to the wine (this was the cloves won't flow around the cup and the wine will be easier to drink). 
When the wine is warm enough, pour it in the cups and distribute the apple shapes to your taste. You can add sugar, depending on how sweet you want the wine to be. 

And voila, you have a beautiful and tasty festive drink!


P.S. If you are underage, or don't like alcohol, try this recipe with tea instead of wine. The spices and apple shapes will add some festive feel to it!

Thanks for reading and see you tomorrow!

Happy holidays,

your Beautysaur
