Drink Recipe: Amoretti Mulled Wine With Organic Blue Agave
As the holidays get nearer, the time for mulled wine is most certainly upon us. And, being big mulled wine fans, we’re more than okay with that. If you’ve never had mulled wine before, you have to try our drink recipe. We use delicious oranges, cloves, and more in our easy-to-make recipe.
While more complicated mulled wine recipes do taste great, we don’t think you have to go through so much trouble just to have a great tasting cocktail. Give our mulled wine recipe a try, and you’ll be amazed that such great taste can come out of such a simple drink recipe!
- 1 sliced orange (no seeds)
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 cups water
- 3 oz Amoretti Organolicious Almond Flavored Blue Agave Nectar
- 1 tsp ground cloves
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 bottle red wine
Combine everything but the wine in a large saucier pan, and slowly bring it to a boil, gradually reducing the heat so that the contents barely simmer. Let the contents simmer for 15 minutes before you add wine. Bring the heat back up so that your mulled wine gets hot, but still don’t let it boil!
Serve in mugs, and give everyone a clove or cinnamon stick as a garnish. One note on the red wine… we prefer to use something especially dry and spicy. Of course, you can use whatever you like, but we believe that the drier and spicier the wine, the better the drink recipe tastes!
Another nice thing about this drink recipe is that it can easily be increased proportionately to make more. Mulled wine makes for a great holiday treat if you’re hosting a cocktail party. Let everyone else start off with a mug before checking out your other drink recipes!
Also, you’re sure to wow your guests with our delicious almond drink syrup, which is flavored with organic blue agave. We think that the organic blue agave really makes this drink recipe taste amazing. A little bit of almond flavor adds the perfect amount of nuttiness. Also, agave itself works as a very distinct sweetener. There’s nothing else quite like it. It’s far sweeter than sugar, but used in lesser quantities so that it doesn’t overpower the palate!
