• 1 litre of water
• 2 lemons
• 3 oranges
• 12 cinnamon sticks
• 5 cloves
• 40g of ginger
• 5g of cardamom
• 2 star anise
• 300g dark sugar
• 300g syrup
How to make hot mulled wine extract

Ingredients to make hot mulled wine
• ¼ litre of hot mulled wine extract (shown above and made at least 48 hours in advance)
• 1 litre of red wine
• 100ml of port
• sugar to taste
Instead of port you could add 100ml of either schnapps or cherry wine.  This helps make a mulled wine drink which is closer to traditional hot German gluhwein (German Gluvine).
