This low-carb mulled wine is the perfect festive drink for winter. With notes of spices like cloves, cinnamon, and star anise, along with oranges you’ll want to sip this concoction all winter long.

To keep this cocktail on the keto side we’re using a little powdered Swerve that sweetens up the dry wine but doesn't add carbs and sugar. Just be sure to watch your serving size as each glass is about 5g of net carbs.

  • 1 (750 ml) bottle dry red wine (merlot works best)
  • 1/2 orange, cut into wedges
  • 1/4 cup cranberries (25 g/ 0.9 oz)
  • 8 cloves
  • 3 cinnamon sticks
  • 4 star anise pods
  • 1/3 cup powdered Erythritol or Swerve (53 g/ 1.9 oz)

  • Nutrition facts are estimated - they do not include ingredients that are used for infusing.
  • Some of the alcohol will be "cooked out" resulting in fewer calories. If you are trying to cut down on alcohol, add 1/2 to 1 cup of water and simmer it on a very low heat for up to 45 minutes. This way you will significantly reduce the alcohol content, leaving the amazing flavour intact.
