Mulled wine, with its warm blend of spices and inviting aromas, is a popular winter beverage that brings comfort to chilly evenings and festive gatherings. While the traditional recipe involves red wine, there's no reason why you can't enjoy the same cosy experience without the alcohol. Here are some ways to enjoy non-alcoholic mulled wine:
- Classic Comfort
Let’s start with a classic non-alcoholic mulled wine recipe. In a pot, combine non-alcoholic red wine (try our Edenvale Alcohol Removed Shiraz), orange slices, cloves, cinnamon sticks, and a touch of honey. Gently heat the mixture, allowing the flavours to meld together and fill your home with a wonderful aroma.
- Fruit Fusion
Enhance your non-alcoholic mulled wine by introducing various fruits. Experiment with apple slices, cranberries, or pomegranate seeds for added complexity and visual appeal.
- Herbal Infusion
Elevate your non-alcoholic version by incorporating herbal elements. Rosemary, thyme, or sage can provide a unique twist to the traditional flavours, creating a sophisticated and fragrant blend.
- Citrus Delight
Experiment with a combination of citrus fruits like lemon, lime, and grapefruit, and add them to your non-alcoholic mulled wine base. The zesty flavours will bring a refreshing contrast to the warm and spiced beverage.
- Chocolate-Infused Treat
Add a touch of dark chocolate to your non-alcoholic mulled wine. The bitterness of the chocolate complements the sweetness of the juice, creating a luxurious treat.
- Tea-Infused Warmth
Combine the comfort of mulled wine with the aromatic notes of tea. Add your favourite herbal tea (such as chai, black tea, or herbal blends) to the mixture as it warms for a delightful fusion of warmth and depth.
- Non-Alcoholic Mulled Sangria
Blend the best of both worlds by mixing Edenvale’s Hearth Mulled Wine with sangria elements. Add chopped fruits, a splash of fruit juice, ice, and a hint of citrus zest to create a refreshing, vibrant and festive beverage.
- Mulled Wine Spritzer
Transform your non-alcoholic mulled wine into a fizzy and refreshing spritzer. Mix equal parts of the mulled wine base and sparkling water or soda water for a lighter take on this classic drink.
- Mocktail Twist
Use Edenvale’s Hearth Mulled Wine as a base for creative mocktails. Blend it with non-alcoholic alternatives like non-alcoholic beer or ginger beer for a surprising twist on traditional mocktail recipes.
- Non-Alcoholic Mulled Sorbet
Extend your enjoyment beyond sipping, by making a delightful sorbet. After preparing the non-alcoholic mulled wine, let it cool and then freeze it in an ice cream maker. The result is a unique and refreshing dessert.
Remember, the joy of non-alcoholic mulled wine isn't just in the taste - it's in the experience. Share it by a cosy fireplace or treat yourself to a glass and some me-time! So, gather your spices, fruits, and favourite non-alcoholic wines - or to make things easier, grab a bottle of Edenvale’s Hearth Mulled Wine! - and get creative!
