It was yet another chilly evening in Auckland last night so we cracked open a bottle of Barker's Mountain Moonshine and made ourselves spicy cups of almost instant mulled wine. It made winter feel so much better, especially in front of a roaring fire.
Unlike the usual mulled wine which takes much stirring and standing over a hot stove this is an almost instant version. The Moonshine base is a blend of red berries (elderberries, blackberries and blackcurrants) and warming spices. You simply add water and red wine and heat until piping hot.
1/4 cup of Barker's Mountain Moonshine
1/4 cup of water
1/2 cup of red wine
Heat together (either in the microwave or on the stove) and serve at once garnished with a slice orange and a cinnamon stick to stir.
