How to make a non-alcoholic mulled wine
Mulled wine is a traditional English Christmas drink, made with red wine, spices, and fruit. This recipe is for a non-alcoholic mulled wine, made with grape juice, so that everyone can enjoy it.
Mulled wine is traditionally made with red wine, but you can use any kind of red grape juice for this recipe. Choose a juice that is not too sweet. If you can find 100% grape juice, that is ideal, but otherwise, look for a juice made with no added sugar.
Start by heating the grape juice in a saucepan over medium heat. You don’t want to boil the juice, just heat it until it is steaming.
While the grape juice is heating, add the spices. This recipe uses cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg, but you can use any combination of spices that you like. Start with a small amount of each spice, and add more to taste.
Once the grape juice is heated, add the fruit. This recipe uses oranges and lemons, but you can use any combination of fruits that you like. Chop the fruit into small pieces so that they will release their flavor into the grape juice.
Allow the mulled wine to simmer for 10 minutes, then taste it and adjust the spices as necessary. Serve hot, in mugs or cups with a cinnamon stick.
