Re:Orange-Scented Mulled Wine

I need to comment on this recipe, because I find it overcomplicated, which is the opposite what mulled wine should be. Mulled wine is served on the ski slopes of Austria and on the average man's table as an after dinner drink in Europe, or a hot drink on a Sunday afternoon when the snow is falling.Seasonings: Cinnamon, lemmon peal and a little of its juice(or orange), whole cloves, sugarCook the seasoning in a cup or two of water until your entire house smells like Christmas, then add the red wine. Warm it up with the wine, but do not boil it, because you will lose the alcohol (hence the reason why you cook the spices in the water and not in wine).Done! This is how simple it should be. If you don't have whole cinnamon, use a dash of the ground one. Improvise with your citrus, adjust the sweetness to your taste. There is no right or wrong way to make this simple and delicious drink. And relax, you don't need all the fancy extras.
