- 2 750ml bottles red wine (we like merlot)
- 3 cups apple cider
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- 4 star anise
- 20 cloves
- 2 small oranges
- 1 cup port
Add the wine, cider, cinnamon, star anise, and cloves to a large pot. Bring to bare simmer over low heat, without allowing it to come to a boil, and cook for 20 minutes.
Zest the oranges with a peeler (gently peeling only the bright orange skin). Remove the mulled wine from the heat and add the orange zest, port, and orange slices if you’d like.
