  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup cranberries (4 oz)
  • 1 cup red wine (such as shiraz)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 bag of Mulling Spice
  • fine mesh sieve & paper towels


  1. In a saucepan, combine water and cranberries. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer for about 25 minutes until the cranberries have softened and "popped."
  2. Strain the cranberry juice through a fine mesh sieve, pressing the berries to release all the juice. Discard the berries.
  3. Strain the juice again through a paper towel-lined sieve to remove any remaining seeds.
  4. Return the juice to the saucepan and add the red wine, sugar, and lemon juice. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer until the sugar has dissolved, stirring occasionally.
  5. Remove from heat and add the mulling spice bag, steeping for 3-5 minutes. Taste and adjust the spice level as desired.
  6. Serve warm or cold and enjoy. Store any leftovers in a sealed container in the fridge and reheat when ready to enjoy.
