Christmas Mulled Wine

Here is an easy recipe for a delicious festive mulled wine. One whiff of the smell and you will know it is Christmas!

2 bottles of red wine (you don't have to buy expensive wine)
2 ounces of brandy
4 cinnamon sticks
A handful of cloves
A dash of nutmeg
2 lemons
2 oranges
¼ cup sugar

Wash and cut the lemons and oranges into slices, leaving the peel on.

Place the wine in a large pan and slowly simmer. Do not bring to a boil.

Add the lemons, oranges, brandy, spices and sugar. Leave to simmer for approximately 20 minutes. Add cinnamon sticks and simmer for a few minutes more.

Serve warm in mugs or glasses.
