Are you looking for a warm beverage to serve at your holiday party? This easy Mulled Wine recipe is made with Malbec red wine and flavored with cider and fall spices.
Are you planning any holiday parties this fall or winter? What beverages are you planning to serve? If you want something a little different from the standard beer and wine, mulled wine is a great seasonal alternative. It includes lots of wonderful fall flavors!
I like to use Malbec to make Mulled Wine because it has a lush flavor with hints of spice. It pairs well with lamb, hamburger and tuna steak, so I like it as a fall or winter wine. I really fell in love with Malbec living in Uruguay, so I like to bring some of that culture into our home here.

- Use a vegetable peeler or zester to remove the zest from the oranges and lemon in strips, being careful to remove only the orange/yellow layer, leaving the white pith intact.
- Next, juice the oranges and lemon into a large stock pot.
- Add the remaining ingredients, with the exception of the wine and brandy, into the pot. Cook on medium heat for 5-7 minutes to allow the spices to infuse into the juices.
- Add the wine to the pot and turn the heat down. Don’t allow the wine to come to a boil or the alcohol will evaporate. Bring to a simmer, then allow the mulled wine to cook on low for 5 minutes.
- Strain peels and spices through a fine mesh strainer and serve hot with ½ ounce brandy and a cinnamon stick or garnish of your choice, if desired.
