Cooking With Collin: Hot Spiced Wine

14 Comments

Looking for a yummy holiday drink that will fill up your home with wonderful scents like Cinnamon and Cloves… and that is sure to be a hit at any holiday party? Then you’ll definitely want to check out this recipe for Hot Spiced Wine.

Before I go any further, please know that this recipe was given to me by my sister, Bryn, and I have not personally tried this wine. Bryn has raved and raved about how delicious this spiced wine is and about the wonderful aromas that will travel through your home when this is brewing in your crock-pot.

Please be warned that this drink is extremely sweet and far from healthy (can you say sugar?!), but it sure would be fun to make a batch when you’re planning a family gathering or just want to treat yourself to something sweet. And if you do not drink alcohol, you can substitute the wine for a non-alcoholic wine.

Hot Spiced Wine

Ingredients:
* 1 quart water
* 3 cups sugar
* 1/2 t. ginger
* 4″ cinnamon stick
* 6 whole allspice
* 12 whole cloves
* Rind of an orange or lemon
* 2 cups unsweetened orange juice
* 1 cup lemon juice
* 1 quart Burgundy Wine (my sis opts for a super cheap wine like Wild Vines Blackberry Merlot)

Directions:
Add all ingredients, except the wine, and bring to a boil. Then simmer for 30 minutes. Strain and add wine. Keep warm in crock-pot or cool & bottle. Will make 2 1/2 bottles. Yummy! 😀

    Ohh, I want to try this…. It sounds like it will smell delicious, I love holiday scents!!!!

    If you live in NY or in a place where you can have wines shipped to you, Brotherhood Winery sells a wine called “Holiday”, which is basically a red with all of the spices already in it! I just pour it in a pan and heat it on the stove = instant mulled spiced wine! And, it’s less than $10 a bottle 🙂

  3. Danielle

    yum yum! Sounds delish! Thanks Bryn! Might make the holidays a little more tasty and um, stress free 😉

    Meggan, I might want to look into brotherhood! I don’t know if I can get wine shipped in NC, but I will sure check 🙂

    I’m not sure where all it ships to but Leelanua Cellers out of Michigan makes a great spiced red wine for the fall called Witches Brew. I’m not even a fan of red wine but it’s positively yummy! I would definitely recommend it if you don’t feel like making this recipe (or don’t have the time). I on the other hand will be making this tomorrow and I can’t wait! Thanks for the recipe!

    Just thought I would share, since my friend just told me about your site. This will probably be my favorite posts! My son’s name is Collin too, he made his grandmother and me each our own apple pie for Thanksgiving. So I LIKE Cooking with Collin!! This is a great recipe, I am going to try because I don’t like Burgundy very well…but this might make it taste a little better to me.

    Come Dec 5th I will be hosting our annual office Cookies and Wassail Day-complete with a non-alcholic spiced cider prepared in a large crockpot.
    It slowly simmers thru-out the day, sending marvelous fragrance in every nook and cranny (and cubicle) on our floor.
    Folks wander in and out the lobby, sampling all the wonderful goodies…
    It’s the BEST timeof the year! 🙂

    We have this in Germany and it is called Gluehwein and is sold at all the Christmas markets! If you have a German deli around, go there and get a bottle. It normally doesn’t cost more than $5 🙂

      I agree with Jennifer. The Gluehwein in Germany sounds very similar to this recipe. I would also think Trader Joe’s or Cost Plus World Market would have it in their stock.

    Collin, we love the hot wine… this is what we call it). My recipe is a little bit different. I use a few apple slices, a few orange slices and bring the wine to a boil. Then I add the sugar… I don’t have exact quantities, but I’m pretty sure it’s way less than 3 cups. We like it sweet, but not too sweet. I add the cinnamon and cloves and 5-7 minutes later it’s ready. It has a great flavor from the fruit. And if it’s summer, you can cool it or drink it with ice. It’s kinda like Sangria.

  9. Samy

    This is really popular drink during festival in Germany and Switzerland. :P. Though, there it is called Gluhwein.

    Cloves. Garlic gloves? Want to make sure before I start purchasing all the ingredients tomorrow?

    • Dawn

      Never mind, figured it out!

    Does anyone know a good place to buy cinnamon sticks (and cloves)? They seem pretty expensive at my local Safeway.
