Recipe for Lampteria

Although mulled wine is a beverage most often associated with the Yuletide season, there’s no reason it can’t be enjoyed at other times of the year too! And if you’re planning to go out leaving cups of wine throughout your city this’ll put some much needed warmth in your bones, either before or after.


1 bottle of wine
4 cups hard cider
¼ cup local honey
4 whole cloves
3 star anise
2 cinnamon sticks
1 orange, zested and juiced

Combine everything in a large saucepan, bring to a boil and then let simmer on low for 10-15 mins. Pour into mugs and garnish with orange peel if you’re feeling fancy. May also add more honey to taste.
