Today's Special & Mulled Wine

Check out today's "12 Days of Christmas" special over on our main Stumpjack Coffee get $5 off Thursday night's Holiday Wines tasting. BTW, it's a today-only-special so you have to be quick.

What a wonderfully frosty evening (the thermometer says 1 degree right now) for some mulled wine. Here's one recipe:
  • 2/3 c. sugar
  • 1 bottle wine
  • 1/2 cup brandy
  • 6 to 8 cloves
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • orange peel from 1/2 orange
  1. Pour wine (non-oak barrel aged wine) into a pan and heat on low.
  2. Cut the zest off half an orange - remove the bitter white pith part.
  3. Lightly pound the pieces of zest to release the aromatic oils. Add the zest and a little juice to the wine.
  4. Add the remaining ingredients.
  5. Stir occasionally, but don't bring to a boil.
  6. It's ready to serve once it gets hot. Ladle into a mug but strain all the spices out first.
