Get ready for a blast from the past because here’s a recipe for a yummy mulled wine to celebrate a new year. Yes, we knew there was a reason to keep that old fashioned coffee maker stored out in the garage or in the attic. A mug of percolated mulled wine is the perfect way to warm up after skiing or snowmobiling too.
Percolated Mulled Wine
6 whole allspice berries
1 tablespoon whole black peppercorns
2 whole star anise
3 cinnamon sticks
1 (1-inch) piece fresh ginger, sliced
3 large strips orange zest
3 large strips lemon zest
2 (750-ml) bottles red wine
3/4 cup honey
place the allspice berries, peppercorns, star anise, cinnamon sticks, ginger and citrus zest in the basket of a coffee percolator. Pour the wine and honey into the percolator. Attach basket, cover and let percolate for 1 to 2 hours. Serve hot.
