Mulled Wine | 12 Days of Christmas Recipes

We've had Guinness, we've had Baileys. So it would be rude not to celebrate Christmas with a glass of mulled wine. Mary Lipsett from The Mountain Inn B&B in Sligo was kind enough to send in this festive mulled wine recipe which she made for a gang of customers in their pub last Christmas and they all loved it! It didn't take too long to make and was a fine Christmas treat to their customers eyes.


  • 750ml bottle Cab Sauvignon/Merlot
  • 1 orange, peeled and sliced
  • 2/3 cup of honey OR 2/3 cup of sugar
  • 1/4 cup of brandy
  • 3 cinnamon sticks
  • 8 whole cloves (add more to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger


  1. Combine all ingredients and cook on a low heat cooker for 25/30 minutes until wine begins to steam and before it boils.

  2. You could also put the cloves and garlic in a cheesecloth bag to keep the mixture a little tidier looking.

We'd like to thank Mary for taking the time to send us in this tasty Christmas recipe and wish you all a Merry Christmas! Make sure to check out The Mountain Inn Bed and Breakfast.
