  • 750 ml bottle dry red wine
  • 2-4 Tbsp honey
  • 1 orange thinly sliced
  • 6-8 whole cloves
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 1-2 star anise
  • 1 sprig fresh rosemary (optional)


  • Pour red wine and honey into saucepan. Stir well to combine.
  • Add orange, cloves, cinnamon sticks, and star anise.
  • Heat over MED-LOW until mixture is close to simmering and is almost too hot to touch.
  • Reduce heat to LOW, cover, and cook 10 minutes. Watch to make sure it doesn't simmer too much or boil.
  • If using rosemary, add to pot. Cook 10 more minutes.
  • Remove from heat and strain through a fine mesh sieve.
  • Serve warm and enjoy responsibly.



My favorite types of wine for making mulled wine are Merlot, Zinfandel, or Cabernet Sauvignon.  These wines have a strong flavor that will compliment the mulling spices.


  • Combine all ingredients in slow cooker.  
  • Cover and cook on LOW for 1 hour.
  • Reduce heat to WARM and serve.
