How can I make a mulled wine recipe that is vegan?
Traditionally, mulled wine is made with red wine, sugar, oranges, cloves, and cinnamon. However, it is easy to make a vegan version of this popular wintertime drink.
There are a few ways to make a vegan mulled wine. One option is to use a red wine that is already vegan. Many popular brands of red wine, such as Bogle and Robert Mondavi, are vegan. You can also check the labels of wines to see if they are certified vegan by the Vegan Society.
Another way to make sure your mulled wine is vegan is to make it with a vegan-friendly wine, such as Frey Organic Red Wine. Frey is a California winery that produces organic and vegan wines.
The sugar you use to sweeten your mulled wine can also be vegan. Some sugar is processed with animal products, but there are many brands that offer vegan sugar, such as Wholesome Sweeteners and NOW Foods.
If you want to add oranges to your mulled wine, you can use fresh oranges or dried oranges. You can also add other vegan-friendly fruits, such as apples or pears.
For the spices, you can use traditional mulling spices, such as cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg. Or, you can get creative and add your own spices to taste. Some other vegan-friendly spices include ginger, allspice, and cardamom.
To make your mulled wine, start by heating your vegan-friendly wine in a pot on the stove. You don’t need to bring it to a boil, but you do want it to be hot. Then, add your sugar and spices and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Next, add your oranges (if using fresh oranges, you may want to add a splash of orange juice as well). Let the mixture simmer for about 10 minutes, then taste it and adjust the spices as necessary. Serve hot and enjoy!
