An easy stove top Mulled wine enjoyable for people of all ages for the holiday season.

Mulled wined is the perfect holiday season comfort drink. In France, it is mostly consumed in Alsace (the region close to the German boarder) around Christmas time and especially at the Christmas market.

How to zest an orange

Zesting an orange

First of all, when you plan to zest an orange, I highly recommend selecting an organic orange in order to avoid eating pesticides. Rince the orange under cold water then dry it with a clean towel. Then, using a zester or a small grater remove the top orange colored layer of the peel. Zest is used to add flavor to a dish or, in today’s case, to a drink.

Prep time


Cooking time




  • For the version using red wine
  • 1.5 cups (375 ml) red wine

  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup

  • For the version without wine (for AIP and paleo and of course for all of those who prefer non alcoholic drinks)
  • 1 cup (250 ml) non added sugar red grape juice

  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) water

  • For both versions
  • 1 orange zest

  • 3 cloves

  • 1 cinnamon stick

  • 2 oranges


  • Transfer the red wine and maple syrup (or grape juice and water) to a sauce pan along with the cinnamon stick, orange zest and cloves. Slice one orange and add it to the sauce pan. Let the whole thing cook on medium heat for 20 minutes.
  • Strain the mulled wine (I like to put a strainer over a large bowl to avoid making a mess) and transfer into a mug or glass. Slice the second orange and cut the slices in quarters. Add the orange slices to the mug to decorate. You can also add the cinnamon stick to the mug. Et voilà! Serve hot.
