Melbourne winters done right!

Winters in Melbourne are synonymous to some sweet-smelling spiced mulled wine. The Queen Victoria Night Market's mulled wine instantly popped into my head as I was on my couch at home, all rugged up.

To make mulled wine with Jen's twist, you will need
3 bottles of dry red wine (Shiraz, Merlot or Cab Sav)
200 gm sugar ( you can add more if you prefer sweetness)
1 stick of cinnamon
6 pieces of star anise and cloves each
1 pinch freshly scraped nutmeg (optional)
1 twisted peel of orange, lime and lemon each
200ml spiced dark rum for the twist

Get mulled
On a slow flame, bring to boil just 1 bottle of wine with sugar and the spice and everything nice ( fruit peels).
Let this reduce to a thick syrup-like consistency.
In the meanwhile, enjoy as the kitchen comes alive with a sweet heady cinnamon scent. Adjust the sweetness (more sugar) to suit your taste.
To this well-balanced concoction, add in the remaining two bottles and let it simmer away for a good three-four hours.
Now for the Jen twist, just before serving, add your spiced dark rum for that extra punch.

P.S - if you have a slow cooker, it's best to keep it overnight and wake up to the heady fragrance of a sweet-smelling kitchen.

You can also store these in clean dry glass bottles, if you have leftovers, that is.
