Slow Cooker Mulled Wine

dsc_1587RECIPE #342, DAY #522


ORIGINAL RECIPE: “Mulled Wine” from Robin Robertson’s Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow Cooker*

TIMING: 4 hours


TOOLS: Nothing

COOK TYPE: Crockpot/slow cooker

HEALTH: They used to consider this a panacea of sorts. Nerves? Fatigue? Sleeplessness? Have some mulled wine. I’m okay with that, at least in moderation.

dsc_1588EXPERIENCE: Mulled wine is right up my alley. I love wine. I love red wine. And warm with spices? Totally great for a chilly, bleak day. And so very European and Renaissance. However, it tends to put me right to sleep.

NOTES: This feels like it wastes an orange. I have also made it where I cut the orange in half. You could squeeze out the juice before serving, although it’s likely to make the drink more cloudy.


  1. Press 12 cloves into an orange and set in the bottom of your crockpot with 4 cinnamon sticks, 3/4 cup brown sugar, and 2 bottles dry red wine. Stir to dissolve.
  2. Cook on low for 4 hours. Serve hot.


Serve with Christmas hors d’oeuvres, like a cheese ball and sausages.
