This typical winter drink - enjoyed mostly around Christmas is made of wine to which mulling spices, sugar, citrus fruit and raisins are added.

Pour the wine into a saucepan, add cloves, cardamom seeds, 2-3 slices of ginger, cinnamon sticks and sugar. Throw in about a teaspoon of orange zest, 2-3 orange slices as well as lemon slices. Pour in freshly squeezed orange and lemon juice. For a lighter version add 100ml of water.
Bring to the boil, let the sugar dissolve and reduce the heat to the lowest point.
Let it simmer slowly for 15 minutes so the spices have time to infuse the wine (make sure it’s not boiling otherwise you could end up with a non-alcoholic version).
Right before the end pour in rum (optional).
Meanwhile: Roughly chop some almonds and throw them altogether with some raisins into mugs or heatproof glasses and pour over strained wine.
Garnish with an orange slice and serve hot/warm. Don’t forget the spoons so you can fish out the almonds and raisins!
