Christmas Mulled Wine recipe


My father gave me this delicious mulled wine recipe years ago - it's been enjoyed by my guest who always come back asking for more!

I realise that a large quantity of wine is not suitable for most diabetics, but this as I've cut down on the sugar one glass full of flavour may well be permissible at Christmas time.


  • 1 bottle of red wine
  • ½ cup of granulated sugar
  • splenda or sugar-free substitute (equivalent to ½ cup of sugar)
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 sliced lemon
  • 2 sliced oranges
  • 2 sliced apples
  • grated nutmeg (1 shake per glass)
Easy to Make!
  1. Heat all ingredients (except oranges and apples) to near boiling.
  2. Add 1 pint of water
  3. Pour over sliced oranges and apple rounds.
  4. Serve hot!

Mind that the mulled wine isn't so hot it breaks your wine glasses - it might be worth allowing it to cool or serving it in something else!
