What is Mulled Wine? 

If you’ve never heard of mulled wine or spiced wine it’s a traditional winter drink served around Christmas at Christmas Markets all over Europe. Learn that it’s a warm alcoholic drink also called glühwein (Germany), vino caliente (Spain), vin chaud (France).

Keto Mulled Wine Ingredients

If you’ve never had this keto drink during holidays, it’s time to discover a new easy recipe that’s super cozy and perfectly spiced. Here’s everything you’ll need:

  • Dry Red Wine: This keto warm cocktail can be made with both dry red wine or white wine. There’s no need to use expensive wine. Any dry wine is perfect if it’s low carb. For this recipe, I used Cabernet Sauvignon, but you can use Merlot or Zinfandel.
  • Oranges – Peel the oranges to avoid the bitter taste.
  • Spices: My favorite spices for keto mulled wine are whole cloves, cinnamon sticks, star anise. A dash of freshly ground pepper or a few cardamom pods would also intensify the taste.
  • Sweetener – Feel free to use your preferred low carb sweetener. You can use granulated Erythritol or Monk Fruit Sweetener.
  • Brandy (optional) – It’s a common ingredient in mulled wine that adds dimension and boosts the flavor.
