Best with 20 oz. Organic Beet Juice

Spiced Mulled Wine

Prep Time: 10 min // Cook Time: 35 min Servings: 8

What to do

  1. Pour the wine, beet juice, apple cider, and pure maple syrup into a large pot and heat over medium-low.
  2. Add the cinnamon sticks, star anise, cloves, and ground nutmeg to a small saucepan and toast over medium heat, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add the toasted spices to the wine mixture and continue to heat, stirring occasionally, for about thirty minutes. Avoid bringing the wine to a full boil – it should be barely steaming at the end of 30 minutes.
  4. Add the brandy and vanilla extract. Stir well and serve in mugs with apple and/or orange slices, leaving the spices in the pot.

Note: You can leave the mulled wine on the stove top over low heat for many hours. You can also store any leftovers in the refrigerator and re-heat later.
