Mulled wine started in Rome in the 2nd century and was used to fulfil their love of alcohol and as a way to warm up in the colder months. It quickly spread across Europe and has been popular ever since. This version is adapted for the warmer Australian conditions.

Getting started
2

Put the sugar in a pan with 1 star anise, 1 cinnamon stick, 4 cloves and water. Bring slowly to the boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar.

3

Simmer for 2 mins, then pour into a large jug and leave to cool.

4

Add the lemon and mandarines, both thinly sliced, to the jug along with the Cointreau, Brandy and red wine.

5

Stir well, then cover and chill for at least 2 hrs or overnight if you can.

6

Serve chilled or over ice, with a twist of orange peel and a star anise.
