Mulled wine is a traditional drink that can be served hot or cold, therefore it’s a great addition to any autumn barbecue or family get together. If you you’re looking to amp up the intensity of this drink, you could try adding some cardomom or ginger to the mix. Be careful not to over spice, however!

1 orange, quartered, each quarter thinly sliced crossways

10 whole dried cloves (dried flower bud)

1 vanilla pod, split

8 strawberries, hulled, washed, quartered Ice, to serve
