Our syrup has all the spices and flavours to mix a perfect batch of mulled wine. The balanced blend of flavours is based on an heirloom family recipe.
Ingredients include cinnamon, star anise, cloves, other spices, fresh ginger, orange and lemon zest; then we add dark brown sugar to give that big Christmas cake feeling, and fructose to brighten and sweeten.
DIRECTIONS: All you need to do is put a bottle of wine in a saucepan (we use clean skin shiraz from our winery) and warm it up. Then add two tablespoons [40mL] of Smoking Bishop syrup, stir it through. Serve warm, but not too hot. Garnish with a slice of orange, etc, as desired.
- Making mulled is a good way to use up half used bottles of wine;
- A pub in Melbourne had a “mulled wine & hot cheese” event, which went through the roof;
- You can warm up single mugs of mulled wine in the microwave, for single serves;
- Mulled wine evokes memories for people, trips to Europe, ski trips, bonfires on the beach.
Do you know why it is called Smoking Bishop?
