how to make mulled gin
Slice up the orange and then put all the ingredients into a saucepan on the hob… Super easy! Don’t let the mixture boil but serve hot.
serving mulled ginWe dried thin orange slices in the oven for 2-3 hours on the lowest heat your oven can go (about 80 degrees) and clipped them to the glass with tiny pegs which can be found here. Then you just pour the hot mixture into a glass (not a thin one or it might crack), and pop in a cinnamon stick! ENJOY Scroll down to discover tips and tricks for drying your oranges!
dried orange decorationThis is nowhere near as daunting as it looks! We love using these for wintery decorations such as in our mulled gin as they really help to create the wow factor when serving. Here are some tips and tricks on how to make your slices look like they’ve just come out of a magazine…
- Slice them quite thin as this well help to dry them out quickly and they’re easier to attach to the glass
- Make sure your slices are even so you don’t get parts burning whilst other parts aren’t dry
- Before laying onto a baking tray, blot your slices with kitchen towel to help soak up some of the excess moisture
- Because ovens can sometimes be annoying, regularly check on your oranges and pull out the ones that look ready (using gloves!)
