Mulling has been around for centuries and is the practice of fusing various spices and fruits in with cider, wines and brandy. The ingredients used are referred to as mulling spices.
For hot apple cider or cranberry juice, use 3 tbsp per gallon. To make a mulled wine add 1-2 tbsp of Mulling Spice for each 750 ml. bottle of red wine with about 1/3 cup orange juice to add a little sweetness. Simmer over low heat in a covered pot for about 20 minutes. To give your home a nice holiday scent, simmer 1-2 tbsp in a small pot of water.
