Mulled Cranberry Juice

Christmas Day tradition in our household dictates that mulled wine is ready and waiting for the arrival of the family after their bell ringing duties. Also after our Boxing Day walk.

For the past couple of years I have replaced this with mulled cranberry juice so the children can also have a glass or two. It still fills the house with that wonderful smell of Christmas spices and is great for those who have to drive.


I carton (1 litre) cranberry juice 1 cinnamon stick
4 tablespoons fresh cranberries ΒΌ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
4 orange slices 8 whole cloves


  1. Place all the ingredients into a large saucepan and heat until it is almost boiling.
  2. Cover and reduce heat and simmer for approx 10 mins.
