Kuhano Vino

  • Serves

    serves 2-4


In central Europe, winter parties are fueled by this mulled wine. A fruity red wine works best for this richly spiced punch, so try a bright-cherry merlot or a jammy syrah.


  • 10 whole cloves
  • 10 black peppercorns
  • 4 star anise, plus more for garnish
  • 4 cups red wine
  • 14 cup honey
  • 12 tsp. grated nutmeg
  • Peel of 2 oranges
  • Orange slices, for garnish


Step 1

Heat cloves, peppercorns, and star anise in a 2-qt. saucepan over medium-high until toasted, 1–2 minutes. Add red wine, honey, nutmeg, orange peels, and 2 cups water; boil. Reduce heat to medium; simmer 10 minutes. Serve in mugs; garnish with orange slices and star anise.
