11 Mulled Wine Recipes You Need In Your Life

Mulled WineNothing warms you up better in winter than a hot mug of mulled wine (also known as; hot wine, vin chaud, glögg & glühwein). Some of my fondest memories of travelling through Europe in 2011 was wandering around the Christmas markets in Paris, Brussels, Bruges, Hamburg and throughout Scandinavia sipping on a hot mug of mulled wine.

Of course the Germans & Scandinavians liked to add an extra shot of rum or multiple types of liquor to the blend but the typical mulled wine recipe normally consists of red wine and a combination of mulling spices (cinnamon, cloves, allspice, nutmeg, star anise, peppercorn & cardamom) all heated up and served in a mug or thick glass.

Recipes differ and so does the way it’s served but there’s one thing for sure, it’ll warm you up like there’s no tomorrow. Plus you can also get white mulled wine, as well as mulled cider and mead, so keep an eye out for those!

Below I have put together a list of 10 absolutely delicious sounding recipes, if you give one ago please make sure to post a picture and your verdict on my Facebook page or leave a comment below.

1. Best Ever Spiced Mulled Wine by Adeline & Lumiere

What I love about this recipe is the citrus and ginger as they’re both top ingredients to fight off the winter sniffles. Plus it’s literally a 2 step process and doesn’t have a billion ingredients like a lot of other recipes. Simple & quick for kitchen novices like myself and I’d like to think it’s a little bit healthy for you too! View the recipe.

2. Slow Cooker Mulled Wine by Stephanie O’Dea

I heart my slow cooker so much. There’s nothing better than dumping ingredients in and then 8 hours later pulling out a fabulous dish that could be restaurant quality. It really is the ultimate cooking for dummies. So when I came across this recipe for slow cooker mulled wine, I just had to share it. Cook on low for 4 hours or high for 2 hours. Easy! View the recipe.

3. Mulled Wine Hot Chocolate by Citrus & Candy

This is what being over 18 years old is all about and this is an invention like no other. Mulled wine meets hot chocolate.. I LOVE IT! Can’t wait to try this one out for myself. View the recipe.

This is a French style mulled wine, called ‘Vin Chaud’ in France. This recipe includes honey and black pepper for that extra zing! View the recipe.

5. Mulled Wine with Pinot Noir by Monday Morning Cooking Club

Not only does this mulled Pinot Noir sound delicious but directly on the recipe you can change between metric and US imperial measuring units as well as setting the number of cups you would like to make and it’ll adapt the recipe right in front of your eyes. That’s a smart web page right there! View the recipe.

6. Glögg by Erik Nilsson

Being a Scandinavian recipe this glögg recipe must have enough liquor in it to keep those far north people nice and toasty. If you’re looking for a mulled cup of deliciousness that packs a punch then this recipe which includes port wine, brandy and vodka should satisfy your needs. View the recipe.

7. Blueberry Glögg by kikki.K

  2. I love mulled wine in winter and it’s so easy to make. I’m definitely going to have to try this mulled wine hot chocolate recipe though. It sounds to die for!

  3. Love this…like you my fondest association with mulled wine is Europe Christmas markets. It just warms you from the inside out. We always talk about doing it but now we’re inspired (although in the northern hemisphere, will have to wait a few months ;).
