TIP: It’s also easy to make in the slow cooker or even Instant Pot, if you prefer. The rule of mulled wine is to make sure you do not boil the alcohol. Reduce the heat and let the recipe cool slightly before adding the wine.
Leave the mulled wine to simmer for at least 15 minutes, and up to 3 or 4 hours, so that all of the delicious flavours can come together. Then strain out the spices, and serve warm.
