  • 3 cinnamon sticks
  • 12 juniper berries
  • 8 whole cloves
  • ¾ teaspoon grated nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons orange liqueur

  2. Set the oven to Gas Mark 2 or 150°C. Line a baking sheet with non-stick paper or a sheet of Teflon. Arrange the orange slices on the paper. Bake for 20 mins until they are dry.
  3. Sterilise a funnel by pouring boiling water over it, then use to fill the sterilised bottles with mulling syrup. Divide the cinnamon sticks and juniper berries between them. Seal and store for up to 2 months. To serve: Warm 450ml (¾ pint) of the syrup with 1 bottle of wine.
