5 Ingredient Mulled Wine

  • Author: Miss AK

  • Yield: 12-14 servings 1x


This 5 Ingredient Mulled Wine will warm your heart and knock your socks off it’s so good. 5 simple ingredients come together on the stove or in a crockpot for a cup of cheer.


  • 4 cups apple cider
  • 1/4 cup mulling spices, I like this kind
  • 3 Tbsp. maple syrup
  • 11.5L bottle of dry red wine, I used a Pinot Noir
  • 1/2 cup Grand Marnier
  • Optional – cinnamon sticks & orange slices for garnish


  • Add the apple cider and mulling spices to a large stockpot.
  • Turn the heat to medium and heat, stirring occasionally. Do not let this boil.
  • When it starts to steam, turn the heat to low and pour in the wine and Grand Marnier.
  • As soon as this heats through (carefully test with a spoon), turn the heat off and cover. Again, do not let this boil.*
  • Strain out the mulling spices.
  • Serve immediately in mugs or glasses with cinnamon sticks and orange slices.


  • If you’re not serving this all at once, heat occasionally on low heat with the lid on or transfer it to a slow cooker set to warm.
  • You could even make this in the slow cooker by adding everything and turning it to low heat and turning the dial to keep warm when you’re through.
  • You can cut this batch in half or double it based on your needs. It’s very forgiving.
