Low-Carb Mulled Wine

Cocktails are always welcome, but this time of year nothing rings in the festivities like traditional mulled wine. Warm, spicy and rich, it’s the perfect drink for both comfort and celebration.

Regular mulled wine recipes include a hefty dose of sugar, but that’s unnecessary when you take advantage of the many incredible varieties of natural low-carb sweeteners out there. All the flavor, none of the added sugar. Tradition is back on the table.

Servings: 7

Time in Kitchen: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 bottle dry red wine
  • 2 oranges
  • 4 whole cloves
  • 3 allspice berries
  • 3 star anise pods
  • 3-4 cinnamon stick (cut in half)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup of erythritol sweetener like Swerve (alternatively, use monk fruit sweetener or stevia-monk fruit blend if preferred)

Instructions:

Peel one orange into decorative strips and insert cloves into the peel. Cut the other orange into decorative slices for serving later.

Combine orange peel, spices, water, and sweetener of choice in a saucepan over medium heat.

Bring to a simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat, and add wine. Let stand for 30 minutes.

Warm just before serving or keep on a low-heat burner. Serve with orange wedges and cinnamon sticks.
