This Mulled Wine recipe uses maple syrup as its primary sweetener then utilizes allspice berries, cinnamon bark, orange peel and clove berries for a smooth, spicy wine that will soothe those winter blues. This vegan spiced wine is great for holiday parties because it's easy to make and it gets things started.
2 ½ Tablespoons whole allspice berries
2, 4 inch pieces of cinnamon bark
2 Tablespoons dried orange peel pieces
2 Tablespoons whole clove berries
¾ cup maple syrup
1 bottle red wine
Combine allspice, cinnamon bark, orange peel, coves, maple syrup and wine in a medium saucepan. Place on medium heat and stir occasionally until the sugar is dissolved. Strain before serving and serve warm.
Note: Placing a spoon in the wine glass before pouring will reduce chances of heat breaking the wine glass.
