|1 l||red wine (dry)|
|500 ml||grape juice|
Vanilla crescent cookies
The warming spices in the mulled wine go hand in hand with the wonderful vanilla flavor of these small cookies.
Caramelize sugar in a large saucepan and deglaze with grape juice. Stir until caramel is dissolved.
Add chopped citrus fruit, cloves, bay leaf, star anise, juniper berries, and cinnamon. Bring to a boil and let simmer over low heat for approx. 10 – 15 min.
Add red wine, gently warming it up for approx. 5 min. Do not boil, as this would burn off the alcohol in the wine.
