This time last year we were still living in England and I was enjoying the Christmas Markets, shopping and drinking mulled wine. So much fun! This year we’re in our new home in Georgia and while I don’t get those gorgeous European Christmas Markets I am enjoying the warmer temperatures! This past weekend we were getting together with friends for a little college football and I whipped up a batch of Slow Cooker Mulled Wine to share. It was incredibly easy and delicious and I know I’ll be making it again soon!
This mulled wine recipe is perfect for holiday parties, I would double or triple the recipe for a crowd. My 6 quart Crockpot (this one) could easily hold this recipe doubled, you may need to use a larger slow cooker to triple it.
Slow Cooker Mulled Wine
1/4 cup honey
2 cinnamon sticks
1 orange, halved
8 whole cloves
1 star anise
4 cups apple cider
1 bottle full red wine (I used cabernet)
2 cups fresh cranberries
Add all ingredients to a slow cooker. (Squeeze juice from orange into slow cooker then add juice remains to pot.) Cook on high 4 hours or low 6 hours. Serve warm and enjoy!
