  • Start by putting the orange juice and zest, the spices, the lemon if using, and the sugar in a medium to large saucepan.
  • Allow to simmer on medium heat until the sugar has completely dissolved.
  • Add the frozen cherries, and then the wine and the water and keep simmering for a good 20 minutes, giving time to the spices to infuse, but do not let the mulled wine boil.
  • You can make you mulled wine ahead of time and simply reheat it or keep it on the stove on low heat, serving it as your guests arrive. Serve warm.
