Mulled Wine With Dried Fruit

INGREDIENTS

prunes – 5 pcs.

red wine – 1 bottle

cinnamon – 4 sticks

dried apricots – 5 pcs.

cloves – 12 cloves

Step by step recipe

Cut the lemon into two parts, stick the clove florets in half of the lemon – otherwise they will float in the brew. Put it in a saucepan, add the cinnamon (don’t break it, otherwise you will have to strain the drink). Cut the almond kernels in half, cut the dried fruit into 3-4 pieces and put them in the pot, where the mulled wine will be brewed. Pour in a bottle of wine and add the required amount of sugar. Put the pot on the cooker and bring it to the boil, without boiling. Pour in 100g of vodka or brandy, add honey, cover and leave to infuse for 30 minutes. After that, reheat it if necessary and you can pour it into glasses.

Good advice for the housewife

Warmed red dry wine with spices is a mulled wine drink, it lifts your spirits and stimulates your immune system. As a rule, dry wine is used for making mulled wine, but semi-sweet Isabella, for example, is not bad. Lemon can be replaced by orange or grapefruit, or a mandarin is a good alternative. If the wine is dry, add 6 tbsp. of sugar to the mulled wine and half as much to the semi-sweet wine. It is better in this case not to add more sugar, but when the drink has heated up and tasted, add more to taste.
