Mulled Wine

Mulled Wine
1 orange, peel and juice
A few slices of orange for decoration
1 lemon, peel
1 lime, peel
250 g caster sugar
Pinch of cloves
1 cinnamon stick
1 bay leaf
1 star anise
1 tsp ground nutmeg
2 bottles of red wine
A few shots of brandy

Place the sugar, orange juice, orange peel, lemon peel, lime peel, cloves, bay leaf, star anise and nutmeg in a pan over a low heat. Add a few glugs of red wine and gently simmer until the sugar dissolves. Bring to the boil for a few minutes. This creates a base for the mulled wine that is full of flavour. Turn down the heat and add the rest of the wine along with the brandy. Simmer for 5 minutes.

Ladle into glasses.
