Leiths Advent - DEC 24 - Our Christmas Eve Mulled Wine

Photo by Charlie Richards.

Christmas eve is upon us, so regrettably our advent comes to an end! We hope that our tips and treats from the Leiths community have filled your foodie minds and recipe books with plenty of festive inspiration. It's well and truly time to kick back in front of the fire and get cosy with a glass of steamy, aromatic mulled wine. Merry Christmas!


Mulled Wine
4 x 75cl bottles of full-bodied red wine
570 ml/1 pint orange juice
290 ml/ ½ pint water
1 orange studded with 12 cloves
150ml/ ¼ pint orange liqueur
2 cinnamon sticks, broken in half
225g/8 oz granulated sugar


  1. Put all the ingredients into a large saucepan and dissolve the sugar over a low heat.
  2. Bring up to simmering point and add more sugar to taste if necessary.
  3. Keep warm but do not boil as the alcohol will be evaporated.
