Mulled Sangria

Cook Time 30 mins
Total Time 40 mins
Servings 2 -4 servings


  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 750 ml sangria


  • Place the cinnamon stick, cloves, nutmeg and brown sugar into a large saucepan over a medium heat.
  • Leave for around 5 minutes, until the brown sugar starts to melt and then stir continuously until fully melted, being reeeeaaaally careful not to let the sugar burn.
  • When fully melted, pour in the sangria - don't worry, the sugar will solidify on the bottom of the pan but this isn't a problem.
  • Constantly stirring, increase the heat to high until the mixture begins to bubble and all the solidified sugar has melted down again.
  • Decrease the heat to low and leave to simmer for 30 minutes.
  • Sieve and pour into a jug. Serve immediately or leave to sit for three days then warm and serve.


Whilst you can serve the sangria as soon as you make it, I prefer to leave it to sit for at least three days and then warm it up in the microwave before serving. The longer you leave it, the more the flavours infuse and the more delicious it becomes!
