  • 1 cup water

  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice

  1. In a saucepan, simmer water and cranberries until the berries are softened.
  2. Strain the juice through a fine mesh sieve, pressing down to release all the juice.
  3. Discard the berries and strain the juice again through a paper towel-lined sieve.
  4. Return the juice to the saucepan and add wine, sugar, and lemon juice.
  5. Bring to a simmer, stirring until the sugar dissolves.
  6. Remove from heat and add the mulling spice bag. Steep for 3-5 minutes, then taste and adjust the flavors if needed.
  7. Serve warm and enjoy. The mulled wine can be stored in the fridge and reheated when ready to serve.
