This warm mulled wine is like Christmas in a cup! Perfect for holiday entertaining or for cozy nights in.
Peel the navel orange and poke the loose cloves through some of the peels
Add the orange peels & cloves, along with the cinnamon sticks, anise pod, and bottle of wine to a stock pot and heat over low heat
Add the honey and sugar and stir to dissolve, careful not to heat the liquid to anything over a low simmer
Keep on low heat while barely simmering for 5 minutes
Taste for sweetness and add more honey or sugar as needed
Remove from heat and let the spices steep for another 5-10 minutes more
Discard the spices and orange peels and ladle the warm wine into mugs. Splash each glass with Grand Marnier
