Hot Spiced Wine Recipe


Looking for a perfect cold weather beverage that will also make your house smell awesome?! This Hot Spiced Wine does just that! I have to admit that I was initially thinking “Will red wine taste weird hot?” The answer is NO – it tastes Ah-mazing! It’s super easy to make and reminds me of hot spiced cider but only better. I will be making more soon for our New Year’s party. And keep in mind that you can definitely substitute non-alcoholic wine for this recipe and the end result is still awesome.

How to make spiced wine Hip2Save


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! :D

My Notes: I used half the sugar in this recipe and it still tasted wonderful. Also, I boiled the ingredients in a medium saucepan first then transferred to a slow cooker when I strained the liquid. I used a very inexpensive red cabernet wine from Cost Plus World Market. I also like to get really inexpensive (like under $5!) but good wine at Trader Joe’s and Grocery Outlet.

    Sounds a lot like german Gluehwein! 🙂

      It is. We call it Glögg in our Swedish home.

      I was going to say the same thing. Try grape juice instead of the orange juice for a variation. Now if someone has a tried and tested Kinderpunsch recipe, I’d take it. Haven’t found anything that tasted like the bottles they sell in Germany.

    Lina you are such an inspiration! Thanks for sharing all your recipes with us! Not only of your photography great but I personally love all the decorative props you put together. Happy nye!!!

    **is your** oops 🙂

    I don’t have all these spices separately… Anyone wanna give me input as to whether pumpkin pie spice would be a good substitute?

    • Bunny

      Pumpkin pie spice is basically cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice and cloves so you’d be missing the nutmeg. The proportions might not end up coming exactly as the recipe but I’m sure it would taste just fine. Why not try a tiny batch (say a glass worth) and see how it tastes?

    • Lana

      Maybe. I would add it in small amounts and taste so that you don’t get it over spiced since most of the spices in the recipe are infused instead of ground. You may really have to go at it with a whisk to keep it from floating on top.

    Hi Lina—-this recipe sounds awesome–thank you! I agree that I love your photos–what kind of camera do you use? Thanks!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Thanks so much that always makes my day! Nikon d5100 with a 55 mm lens Thanks!

    I’ll have to try this. I still have left over cinnamon sticks from your Pumpkin Spice Lattes that I made Christmas Eve. They were a HIT!!! I’ve had couple requests for the recipe since then. I dolled it up with the whip cream and sprinkled cinnamon and cinnamon stick on the side in my Christmas mugs. Wow did I impress! Thanks to you 🙂 Happy New Year!!!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Yeah! That’s great news 🙂 You’d enjoy this too! Thanks!

  8. Janie

    Now this I will have to make! Yum! Thank you for sharing!

  9. Katie

    I made a version of this for Christmas dinner. It was yummy! I just used straight red wine, honey to taste, apples, oranges, and spices. The key is to let it sit. It won’t taste good at first, everything needs to sit and mellow together.

  10. Kat

    Thanks! I was looking for a good recipe and I’m making this tonight for our party! Happy new year!

  11. Margie Collins

    The only time I buy Charles Shaw wine or the inexpensive wine at Whole Foods is to make this and it always comes out delightful. Yum!

  12. Retta

    just made this for a nye party. It’s dangerously good. I also used half the sugar, used ground allspice (couldn’t find any whole), but used fresh ginger instead of ground. easy, delicious, and great for a party. Thank you Lina!!
