Mulled Wine Punch
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
The longer this punch stands, the spicier the mixture will be. Strain out flavorings when it tastes right to you, and warm gently before serving, if desired.
Yield: Serves 14
Plan Ahead: Make at least 1 hour ahead to allow spices to infuse punch.
- In large, deep pot over medium-high heat, combine wine, port and brandy. Add sugar, raisins, ginger, orange zest, cinnamon sticks, cloves, cardamom and star anise. Slowly bring to a simmer, stirring to dissolve sugar, then reduce heat to low and cook for 5 more minutes. Remove from heat and let stand for 1 hour to let spices infuse.
- Transfer to heatproof punch bowl and garnish with slices of orange.
