  • 2 cups red wine (I used Cabernet Sauvignon)
  • 2 cups apple cider
  • 2 tbsp mulling spices
  • 3 tbsp peeled and grated fresh ginger, packed
  • 2 tbsp orange peel


  1. Stir together all ingredients in a saucepan. Heat on low/medium heat until mixture is bubbling.
  2. Once bubbling, let simmer for at least a half hour, or longer. Strain before serving.

Recipe Notes

If after simmering you find the ginger flavor to be too strong, you can add equal quantities of wine and cider and heat to slightly dilute. That said if you're not sure on how you'll feel about ginger's bite here, I suggest starting with a smaller quantity of grated ginger and tasting throughout to see if you'd like to add more.


This recipe yields 1 quart.
