To keep warm during winter season just sit back, relax and enjoy this gorgeous cold evening with a glass of spiced mulled wine, my favourite winter warmer!

Ingredients:

200 ml of water
1 orange, sliced into rounds
½ lemon Slices (optional)

2 star anise (optional)

Combine all ingredients in a non-aluminium saucepan, and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, until is about to boil.  Reduce heat to medium-low, and let the wine simmer for at least 15 minutes. Let it cool for a bit, and serve warm.

Voilá! We feel better already🙂

COTD 04.12.16:Affluence in all its forms…
