Mulled Wine

Its that time of year in Australia, well Melbourne more so as it is very cold.  I have been trying to shake an annoying Sinus Lurgy for over a month.  I got the hankering for Mulled wine today.  Which is Red wine infused with Spices and fruits and drunk warm.
Here is the Recipe for those of you who may want to try it or want a really good well balanced Recipe.  All I can say is YUM YUM YUM!
Mel’s Mulled Wine
750ml Red Wine
150g Castor Sugar
1/2 Cup Orange Juice
Peel of one Lemon
Peel of one Orange
1 Star Anise
1 Cinnamon Stick
5 Cloves
1 tsp fresh Nutmeg
Pinch of Ginger
1. Place all ingredients EXCEPT the wine into a large saucepan and place on a medium heat. Add just a slosh of the red wine to the pan to ensure the sugar is covered and let it cook for 4-5 mins until it becomes thick and syrupy.  All the spices and feel will infuse in this time.

2. Once the liquid has thickened add the rest of the wine and turn down the head. DONT let it bowl or you will lose the ALCOHOL.. lol   Simmer for about 5 mins and serve hot with slices of fresh Orange.
