• Winter Warming Mulled Wine Satchets

    Winter is the perfect time to sit back and enjoy a sweet and spicy mulled wine and well mull....

    Make just one mulled wine sachet or a bunch so next time you feel like a mulled wine, it's easy to pop a sachet + wine in a pot and you you will be enjoying this warming beverage in no time or you could share your sachet with friends this Winter.

    Not only is this mulled wine a delicious drink, it's also a treat for your sense of smell, as the aroma will fill your entire house - yum!

    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 make it look pretty with a cinnamon stick and fresh or dried orange slice garnish.
