Mulled Wine with Oranges and Almonds

Mulled Wine with Oranges and Almonds

That’s one of the reasons I love winter! As soon it starts snowing it is appropriate to have some hot wine. ūüôā It¬†tastes¬†the best after a long winter weekend walk with people you love. The best hot wine you can get is at German Christmas markets. However this particular recipe I got from my Polish father (thank you dad!). The orange, cloves, allspice and¬†almonds¬†make this drink very aromatic and will¬†definitely¬†worm you up! ūüėĬ†Hot Wine

For 4 cups:
♥  1 bottle of dry red wine
♥  1 orange
♥  1 teaspoon of cinnamon powder (best would be Cinnamon sticks tough!)
♥  3 spoons of almonds
♥  1 spoon of raisins
♥  4-7 spoons of honey (to taste!)
♥  1 spoon of cloves
♥  1 spoon of allspice

1. Start with blanching almonds in order to easily remove their skin. Pour boiling over almonds and leave it for 1-2min. After this time the skin should go off without any difficulties.

2. Pour the wine in a pot. Add cloves, allspice, cinnamon powder and almonds. Heat it up on the medium hot stove almost until boiling- just before it starts boiling put it of the stoves and leave it to cool down a bit for 15min. Repeat this step 2-3 times.
