A tutti voi, un Buon Natale! Spero abbiate passato bene le feste circondati dai vostri cari. Quale momento migliore dell’anno per stare insieme davanti ad un bel fuoco acceso e gustarsi un buon bicchiere di vin brulé? Non c’è niente di meglio per riscaldarsi da questo tempo freddo! Quindi ecco a voi una deliziosa ricetta da gustare con le persone che amate di più!

1L Red Wine – Vino Rosso

200g Sugar – Zucchero

1 lemon peel – scorza di limone

1 orange peel – 1 scorza di arancia

2tsp cinnamon – 2 cucchiaini di cannella

1tsp nutmeg – 1 cucchiaino di noce moscata

8 cloves – 8 chiodi di garofano

1 Anise star – 1 stella di Anice


Place all the ingredients (except the wine) in a big sauce pan. When you peel the lemon and the orange be careful not to peel off the white part as it will result bitter.

Mettete tutti gli ingredienti in una pentola capace (ad eccezione del vino). Fate attenzione, quando sbucciate l’arancia ed il limone a non grattare via la parte bianca, in quanto quest’ultima risulterebbe amara.


Pour the wine and on medium fire bring to the boil, let it boil for a couple of minutes and serve hot! If you want to get rid of the alcohol, simply place a lighted match on the wine when it boils (careful with the flame!!).

Versate il vino e portate ad ebollizione a fuoco medio. Lasciate bollire qualche minuto e poi servito caldo! Se volete togliere l’alcol, passate sul vino bollente un fiammifero acceso (fate attenzione alla fiammata!).

    For the past 3 years, I have been in Europe just around Christmas and have always enjoyed Mulled Wine. This year I am at home in India and missing the Christmas fun. 🙂

      Thank you for you comment dear Aruna! You should try and make it back home to re-live a little bit of Europe there! 😉
