• Mrs Clause's Spiced Wine Sachets

    Prepping for Christmas and wanting to add a little spice? These wine sachets are the perfect addition. They also make a super cute heart felt gift. 

    What you need:

    • Aroma Bottles Bath T-bag
    • 1 star anise
    • 1 cinnamon quill
    • 1 tsp cloves
    • 1 tsp all spice
    • 1 piece stem ginger or drop of ginger oil
    • 2 tsp dried mixed peel
    • 2 tbsp raw sugar
    • 4 cardamom pods

    These amounts are to fill 1 sachet. 1 sachet per bottle of red wine.

    Method for creating spiced wine sachet:

    1. Measure out your ingredients and place all except the cinnamon quill and star anise in the centre of the cloth. We will use these as decoration on the outside of the sachet. However, if you prefer to include them on the inside, that’s fine — just crumble the cinnamon down to make it small enough to fit. 
    2. Gather the top of your sachet by pulling both twin strings. Be sure to attach your cinnamon quill and star anise to the sachet too. You can also add the instructions label, or give this separately so no one accidentally leaves it attached during cooking. 

    Method for cooking

    1. Add one bottle of red wine to saucepan and add sachet (you can also add some extra fresh sliced orange to the pot) warm gently for about 15 mins and let the sachet flavours infuse the wine
    2. You are ready to serve one the wine is warm and the whole house will be smelling amazing.
    3. Serve warm in a thick glass or mug and do Mrs Clause proud and make it look pretty with a cinnamon stick and fresh or dried orange slice garnish. 

    Gift your beautiful spiced wine sachets to teachers, colleagues, friends and family with a nice bottle of red this Christmas!
