When heading out on a cold winter walk, pack a thermos of this steamy mulled wine for a cosy evening treat.

You will need:
750 ml red wine
One orange
One lemon
6 cloves
1 cinnamon stick
1/2 cup brandy
2/3 cup sugar

Pour a 750 ml bottle of red wine into a saucepan over low heat. Add one thinly sliced orange, one thinly sliced lemon, 6 cloves, 1 cinnamon stick, half a cup of brandy and two-thirds cup of sugar.

Stir occasionally at a simmer – don’t let the wine come to the boil.

When the mixture is steaming and hot it is ready. Strain and pour into thermos.

Enjoy around a campfire!
