Urban greens Cocktail Garnish kit used in mulled wine

Time to replace the summary cocktails with warm wintery drinks.

This basic mulled wine recipe can be jazzed up with any variety of additions: garden herbs, apple cider or other spirits like brandy or cointreau.

Ingredients:

10 cloves

2 cinnamon sticks

1/4 cup caster sugar

1 roughly grated nutmeg

2 cups of water

Grated rind of 1 orange

750ml fruit red wine

Method:

Heat all ingredients except the red wine, in a large saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a summer for 10 minutes.

Add red wine and simmer for a further 5 minutes.

Strain and serve.

For additional flavours add fresh herbs, brandy, apple cider or cointreau in the last 5 minute simmer.
