Hot Mulled Wine
Orange, Spices, Scotch Whisky
Whether on the slopes or off, Hot Mulled Wine is guaranteed to ward off that winter chill.
A fruity orange juice reduction has a touch of sweetness, warming spices of cinnamon and clove, the exotic flavor of star anise and the unique herbal fragrance of bay. A hearty Cabernet Sauvignon (that’s not too oaky or tannic) is simmered with the orange spice mixture until piping hot. The wine is fortified with a generous splash of scotch whisky for an extra kick.
When it comes to hot mulled wine, the garnish is important! We jazz it up, otherwise, it just looks like murky fermented juice in a glass. Orange slices and cinnamon sticks are a traditional garnish. Additionally, we skewer luscious amarena cherries to enhance the dark fruit characteristics of the wine. Skol!
