Method For Making Mulled Wine
Put all the ingredients in a large saucepan and give them a little stir.
Heat the pan until the wine almost simmers over medium-high heat. No bubbles! Do not let it boil the alcohol off.
Reduce heat to low, cover, and let the wine simmer for at least 15 minutes.
Strain the mulled wine using a fine mesh strainer then give it a taste. Add the sweetener until you get your desired taste.
Serve warm in your favourite mug and add your garnishes.
