    How much ground cinnamon would you use to replace 3 sticks? Great link Rikki!

    Sticks infuse the flavour so I would add a pinch of cinnamon.

    It's nice made and kept warm in the slow cooker. :)

    Well I am sat drinking lovely mulled wine!

    I went for:

    1 cup of red wine
    1/2 cup of orange juice
    1/8 cup of brandy
    a small grating of nutmeg
    a pinch of cinnamon
    a small pinch of mixed spice
    4 whole cloves

    It is looooooovely!

    However I have just been back into the kitchen to grab my lap top and noticed I had left the hob on with the remainder of my mulled wine effort so I think that lots might have to go down the sink but I will try it first! :rotfl:

    Thanks for all your help!

    I have invited several friends and neighbours around for food and mulled wine tomorrow. Food is ok, but I still had to buy the mulled wine. It is deep snow here and I am scared to venture out in the car. I have loads of red win and plenty of spices. Is there any way I can make mulled wine?

    For once I can answer this! I asked the same thing last night. My recipe went like this:

    1 cup of red
    1/2 cup of orange juice
    1/4 cup of brandy
    small pinch of cinnamon (ground)
    small pinch of mixed spice (ground)
    small grating of nutmeg (ground)
    2 cloves

    Increase the quantities as necessary this was just for me last night! Yum!

    Of course you can! Warm up the red wine in a saucepan, add some cinnamon, cloves (not too much), nutmeg, allspice and a few slices of citrus fruits and a teaspoon of sugar. You can add some vanilla if you have a bit of a pod kicking around. Heat to just under boiling-point and Hey presto! Mulled wine.

    n.b. alcohol evaporates at a much lower temperature than water so it's perfectly OK to add a shot of rum or brandy into each glass when serving. That's the way they serve it in Germany so it would be even more authentic like that. Dass macht Gluewein mit Schuss. Prost, und eine frohlichten Weinacht! Something like that any way, my German's a bit rusty from lack of use

    Oh the method! Doh!

    Stick it all in a pan and warm gently - do not allow to boil.

    Oh yes and sugar - LOL
    It is no wonder I try not to reply to questions very often! :rotfl:

    Many thanks. I have all these ingredients, so should be fine. Just need to give the saucepan a really good scrub as I made vegetable soup in it earlier.
