Spice Mix for Mulled Wine or Cider


  • 2 Tbsp cinnamon bark chips (crush a cinnamon stick)
  • 1 Tbsp whole cloves
  • 1 Tbsp fennel seeds
  • 1 Tbsp whole allspice seeds
  • 1 tsp cardamom seeds (removed from pods)
  • 1/2 to 1 tsp orange rind (dried)


  • To make mulled wine, pour a 750 ml bottle of red wine and 1/2 cup honey into crockpot.
  • Tie 2 Tbsp of the spice mix in a piece of double-folded cheesecloth or a muslin brew-bag and add to wine.
  • Simmer on crock-pot high setting for 45 minutes.

For mulled cider, as above, but omit the honey.
