1 750 ml Red Wine like Cabernet Sauvignon
4 cups Apple Cider
1/4 cup Honey
1/2 tsp Cinnamon Extract
1 oz Mulling Spices
Juice of 4 oranges
Large strips of orange peel, for garnish

If we had to name tea spice blend of the holiday season, it would be Mulling Spice. Bits of cinnamon, allspice, cloves and a little star anise. This combo is definitely the aroma and flavor of the season. Mulled Wine is traditionally served with a garnish of orange. Here in Louisiana, we use satsumas – the perfect, crowd-pleasing elixir for local citrus.


1.Combine the wine, cider, honey, mulling spices, extract and satsuma juice in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil and simmer over low heat for 10 minutes.
2.Pour into mugs and serve with a strip of orange zest for garnish.
