Ingredients

  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 2 clementines
  • 1 lemon
  • 100g 4oz light muscovado sugar
  • Twist of orange zest and a star anise, to serve
  • 1 star anise
  • 150ml water
  • 150ml Cointreau

Instructions

  • 1Put 100g light muscovado sugar in a pan with 1 star anise, 1 cinnamon stick, 4 cloves and 150ml water.Bring slowly to the boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Simmer for 2 mins, then pour into a large jug and leave to cool.
  • 2Add 1 lemon and 2 clementines, both thinly sliced, to the jug along with 150ml Cointreau and a 750ml bottle light red wine, such as a Beaujolais. Stir well, then cover and chill for at least 2 hrs or overnight if you can.
  • 3Serve chilled or over ice, with a twist of orange zest and a star anise. If you’d like to serve a traditional warm mulled wine, there’s no need to chill – simply warm through without boiling and serve in heatproof glasses.
