In the cold season there is nothing better than a spicy, warming red wine mulled wine.
The Naked Chef prepares homemade mulled wine in two stages. First, Jamie Oliver brews a thick, spicy syrup from half the wine. Today... Thus, spices, sugar and citrus fruits have time to infuse, and as a result, give the drink a richer taste and aroma.
Then the chef adds the remaining wine and heats it over low heat without bringing it to a boil so that the alcohol does not evaporate.
