We love mulled wine for so many reasons, but mostly because it’s spicy and wonderful from all of the fresh herbs, berries, and spices. Before we chat all things mulled wine, let’s chat raspberries for a second.
We <3 Raspberries
Raspberries are definitely a go-to for us at Fit Foodie HQ. We love adding them to smoothies, oatmeal, fruit crisps, sauces, etc because we love their flavor, texture, and health benefits. Here are some more fun facts about raspberries:
- Raspberries can be gold, black, purple, and red (most common)
- Low in calories and fat
- High in fiber and vitamin-c
- Heart healthy
- 1 serving of raspberries is 1 cup and it’s only 52 calories!
There’s no shame in eating a whole carton yourself with stats like that, people.
So, this Mulled Wine
Mulled wine is for sure a show-stopping recipe, and the best part is, it’s actually really easy to make! All you need to do is pick your favorite bottle of red (we used Pinot Noir), choose your favorite whole spices (cinnamon sticks, cloves, etc.), grab a carton of raspberries, and add a sweetener of choice such as maple syrup.
Once you’ve got all your ingredients on hand, you toss them all in a pot and then the magic happens. Simmer, simmer, simmer. Simmering infuses the red wine with all of those delicious fall flavors. Simmering also helps break down the raspberries, which gives this recipe that amazing berry flavor. Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 bottle of red wine
- Fresh orange peel
- Star anise
- Whole allspice
- Whole cloves
- Cinnamon sticks
- Maple syrup
Feel free to give this recipe your own twist and add whatever whole spices you prefer. You can even sub out the maple for another sweetener such as a simple syrup or honey. Don’t forget to serve this recipe warm!
