bottle dry red wine (Merlot, Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec)
oranges (1 sliced into rounds for the mix, 1 for garnish)
Combine the wine, cinnamon sticks, cloves, star anise, honey, and one orange (sliced into rounds) in a saucepan. Stir and bring to a simmer.
Continue to simmer 10 minutes.
Pour into mugs, and garnish with an orange slice. Serve warm. Feel free to use a strainer to serve without any orange peel or spices that may work their way in.
Alternatively you can warm mulled wine up in a slow cooker and keep it on warm if serving at a party. Give it at least 30 minutes to one hour to come up to temperature in a slow cooker.
