Cook Time → 15 min
1. Bruise your cardamom pods with the back of your knife. Put all ingredients except of sugar in a pot over medium low heat. Before it starts to boil, remove from heat and add sugar. Let sit for up to 30 minutes, strain and serve. To garnish, put a few orange slices in a mug along with a cinnamon stick.
2. To keep the mulled wine warm for a longer time put your mulled wine on a really low heat and pour it into glasses as your guests arrive. Enjoy!
3. You can add rum or brandy in your mulled wine to give it a stronger flavor. Add 20 ml or 2/3 fluid oz per portion before the mulled wine is ready and simmer for 3 more minutes. Another option is to make it non-alcoholic by substituting grape juice to wine.
