Ingredients
  • 2 bottles strong red wine
  • 2 oranges, sliced
  • 2 apples, sliced
  • ½ cup Torani vanilla syrup
  • 2 cups apple juice
  • 4-5 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 tbsp whole cloves
  • 4-5 star anise
  • 2 tbsp ground ginger {or handful of fresh ginger pieces}
  • ½ tbsp pink peppercorns
  • optional: rum, brandy, or orange liqueur for serving
Instructions
  1. In a large pot, combine the wine, sliced fruit, Torani vanilla syrup, apple juice, and spices.
  2. Bring mixture to a boil, then lower to a simmer, cover, and allow to cook for 30-35 minutes to infuse the wine.
  3. When ready to serve, strain mixture through a fine mesh sieve to remove all spice pieces.
  4. Pour mulled wine into cups, and enjoy warm!
  5. Note: a lot of the alcohol does evaporate out during cooking, so you can top glasses off with some brandy, rum, or orange liqueur to serve!
