French Food Friday...Vin Chaud

photo from here
Bonjour from a very mild SW France,
I am not sure what has happened to the weather but the cold has been replaced by mild but drizzly weather.
It is our village's marche de noel this Sunday and to get in the mood I am making mulled wine or as it is called in French vin chaud which translates to hot wine.
Vin Chaud


Heat gently 1 bottle of red wine + a glass of water add 20 g of spices for mulled wine (1 / 2 box) and 60 g sugar complete the mixture with a few slices of oranges.

Note: Infuse spices at least 10 minutes (the mixture should not boil)

Préparation :
Chauffer doucement 75 cl de vin + un verre d’eau
ajouter 20 g d’épices pour vin chaud (1/2 boîte) ainsi que 60 g de sucre
compléter le mélange par quelques rondelles d’oranges.

Remarque :
Laisser infuser les épices au minimum 10 minutes (Le mélange ne doit pas bouillir)

You can replace the bottle of wine with a good bottle of apple juice, we tasted this recently at the marche de noel in Bergerac and it really is delicious.

très bon vendredi à tous, Leeann x


  1. Greece must be having the same weather as France, warm, dull, drizzling rain, not very festive at all, I must try your mulled wine, to cheer me up!
    Have a wonderful Christmas.

  2. Not here we have snow and blustery cold! The mulled wine aounds so warming and the scent...ahhhh!
    Joyeux Noel!
