Easy German Mulled Wine
1 TBSP C&C Red Wine Mulling Spice
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup water
1 bottle of dry red wine
1/4 cup of brandy
Using a vegetable peeler or zester, remove the zest from the lemon and orange, avoiding the white pith; place the zest in a large saucepan. Juice the lemon and orange and add the juice to the pan. Add C&C Red Wine Mulling Spice.
Add the sugar and water. Over high heat bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Cook until the mixture is reduced by about one-third, about 20 minutes.
Add the red wine and brandy, stir to combine, and bring just to a simmer (don’t let it boil). Remove from the heat and strain to remove the spice and zest before serving.
