I plan to make Lord Commander Mormont’s ‘Robust Red’ hot spiced wine. This recipe is inspired by the Lord Commander’s preferred drink from the television show, Game of Thrones. I’ve made mulled wine before but the Lord Commander was a connoisseur. It is described in vague terms in the show, so I trialled this completely different method of making mulled wine, and it’s now officially my favourite cold weather alcoholic beverage, other than my signature Hot Toddy.

Ingredients

1 bottle of ‘robust red’, a nice merlot goes well with this.

Cinnamon,

nutmeg,

honey,

raisins,

Mixed nuts, ie: hazelnuts, almonds, pecans,

dried berries ie: cranberry, and raisins.

Citrus zest/ juice optional.

It must be hot enough to warm your insides, but must never be allowed to come to a boil. Allow mulled wine to simmer slowly.
