To tell you the truth I don't drink wine so I had my mother be the judge of this one. She loved that the orange hint and ginger kick really came through well and gave the beverage those lovely Christmas cosy feels.
This is one of the easiest recipes I've had to make and although I don't drink wine, it certainly looked and smelled so deliciously tempting to drink especially while I was adding the orange peel and stem ginger.
Who knew hot wine would be the perfect alcoholic beverage for this festive winter season!
No need to be fancy about it either, any red wine along with the brewing spices will guarantee the house to be filled with an amazing aroma and taste delicious.

This easy recipe will have your family and friends hanging in the kitchen rather than around the dinner table with this warm fragrance you cannot resist to keep away from.
1 Bottle of Red Wine
4tbs Brown Sugar
3-4 pieces of Stem Ginger with 2-3tbs of Syrup
1 Orange sliced into 4 wedges.
2 strips of Lemon Peel (I also added in some Lemon and Lime Peel but this is optional if you prefer a more or less bitter tone).
1 packet of Mulled Wine Spice Mix
Pour a bottle of wine into a large enough pot and leave on a low to medium heat. Do not let the wine boil as it will evaporate the alcohol.
Add the spice mix.
Add the brown sugar.
Add orange peel, lemon peel and lime peel.
Cut 1 orange into 4 wedges (no need to peel) squeeze and add to the pot.
Roughly dice the ginger stem cubes and add the stem ginger syrup.
Let all the ingredients stew in the pot for a few minutes before straining using a sieve and serve with a stick of cinnamon and slice of orange for classy decoration.
