Make Your Own: Mulled Wine


You shouldn't miss out on the party just because you are being healthy or healing, giving your liver a break or don't drink alcohol. Look no further than this festive twist on the Christmas classic. While traditionally served hot in the northern hemisphere over the season, keep scrolling for a chilled 'Aussie Christmas' version.


Ingredients

  • 1 Artisane Mulled Wine Spice Sachet

  • 1 Bottle (750ml) of fresh, bottled or sparkling grape juice (or dry red wine for an alcoholic option)

  • 1 Organic orange slices

  • Honey/raw sugar/maple syrup to taste (optional)

Combine all ingredients in a saucepan, and heat just barely to a simmer over medium heat (be careful not to boil off the alcohol if making the alcoholic option). Reduce heat to low, cover, and let the juice/wine warm for between 30 minutes to 3 hours. Strain, sweeten to taste and serve warm in mugs


Aussie Christmas Cocktail


Make as above, however once the juice/wine has finished infusing, leave to get to room temperature and then chill in the fridge for a minimum of 2 hours. Once cold pour into a jug of ice, frozen mixed berries, citrus and apple slices and serve immediately.


This sachet also works with dry white wine.


Properties of the Healing Spices

"Cloves and ginger are especially good for warding off respiratory ailments and any cold or flu symptoms. They also help relieve headaches, nausea, muscle spasms, tension, & nerve pain. Cinnamon is very good for reducing inflammation in the body making it helpful for people with autoimmune disorders such as fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. Cinnamon also has the amazing ability to stop yeast infections, candida, and menstrual cramps. Star anise is highly beneficial in the treatment of asthma, bronchitis, rheumatism, back pain, shingles, herpes, halitosis, and sinus infections. It is also commonly used as a digestive aid and can help to relieve gas, constipation, cramping, bloating, heartburn, and indigestion." Anthony William

As well as cloves, ginger, cinnamon and star anise the Artisane Mulled Wine Spice Sachet also contains:


Nutmeg has been used for thousands of years and is highly beneficial for the neurological, cognitive, immune, and digestive systems. Nutmeg also contains anti-depressant, anti-fungal, and digestive properties.  

Vanilla beans are a highly prized medicinal fruit of the vanilla orchid and have several health promoting properties. Vanilla has a calming effect on the nervous system and is an effective treatment for anxiety and stress. The aroma of vanilla beans alone has been shown to increase feelings of relaxation and happiness.


Allspice is used for indigestion (dyspepsia), intestinal gas, abdominal pain, heavy menstrual periods, vomiting, diarrhea, fever, colds, high blood pressure, diabetes, and obesity.


Cardamom has similar health properties to that of cinnamon and ginger. Cardamom is great for the digestive system and stimulates the appetite as well as eases nausea, indigestion, and cramping. It also helps to kill off any food borne bacteria in the digestive tract which helps to protect against food poisoning and gastric distress. Cardamom works well as a diuretic and can reduce bloating, water retention, and swelling.
