Mulled wine with cranberries

Mulled wine has long been a favorite during the holidays to add an extra spice to any menu. Warm up on a cold winter day and share with a special someone after dinner, or whip up a couple batches and serve it hot to guests arriving at your party. If you know that some of your guests prefer a cold cocktail, you can also serve it chilled and even add some orange slices for a citrusy, holiday version of Sangria!


What You’ll Need:

  • 1 1/2 cups cranberry juice cocktail
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 3 cups dry red wine (such as Merlot or Cabernet Sauvignon)
  • 1/2 cup fresh cranberries


  1. 1. In a large saucepan or cockpot, combine the cranberry juice cocktail, sugar, cinnamon sticks, and star anise. Simmer for 15 minutes.
  2. Stir in the wine and cranberries and bring back to a simmer. Serve warm & spread some holiday Cheers

  1. Yum! I love mulled wine, and I love the idea of a recipe that cuts in a little cranberry juice–all the better to sip a little all day long on a holiday without getting too wobbly! Thanks–I’ll give it a try.
