Cooking White Mulled Wine:
Step 1: combine the wine with sugar.We take a clean and dry enameled saucepan or glass refractory. We pour quality dry white wine into it. Add sugar to the pot with wine. It is advisable to take cane, but you can also ordinary granulated sugar. Instead of sugar, you can use honey, but then you need to add 1.5 times more than sugar. Then fill the purified water. The main thing, do not add more sugar than is written in the recipebecause a dangerous combination of sugar and alcohol can cause a big headache in the morning. This point is very important, as many producers try to “improve” cheap wine precisely by increasing the amount of sugar in it. Semi-dry wines do not need additional sweetening at all. That is why cheap and surrogate wines are not suitable for mulled wine!
Step 2: add citruses and spices.Rinse fruit thoroughly under running water. On a cutting board, cut lemon and orange into thin slices. In this recipe, it is not necessary to cut off the peel from citrus fruits, you can just wash them well before slicing in hot water and wipe them with a paper towel. To citruses and wine add spices: cloves with cinnamon. Forget about ground spices, everything spices added to mulled wine must be whole! Otherwise, your wine will change not only color, but also taste, that is, it will be bitter.
Step 3: warm the mulled wine.After all the above procedures, put our pan on a stove and turn on a slow fire. We warm the wine on fire 5-8 minutes stir constantly until we bring to a boil. The optimal temperature when heating mulled wine is 68-72 degrees. When the white foam disappears, remove the pan from the heat, filter the drink into a bowl through cheesecloth or a very fine sieve, and let it brew for a bit - 5-7 minutes.
Step 4: serve the white mulled wine.After that, you can safely pour the drink into tall transparent glasses. Serve only hot while decorating with orange mugs. Enjoy your meal!
- - You can replace the added water in mulled wine with apple juice if desired.
- - if you want to make the drink stronger - we recommend adding a little white rum, 1 part of rum to 5 parts of wine when cooking it.
- - instead of lemon and orange, you can safely add banana, pear and peach, and also vanilla on the tip of the knife.
