Sparkling mulled wine

Mulled wine is a must-have at every successful Christmas party. But for fans of fizziness in your drinks, the traditional kind of mulled wine might taste a little too boring for your palate. Here’s how you can spice up your mulled wine with fizz this holiday season!


  • 130 g of sugar
  • 200 g of water
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • 1 orange, sliced
  • A handful of cloves
  • Cinnamon sticks
  • 1 bottle of dry red wine
  • 50 g of cranberry juice
  • Cold still water


  1. Make a sugar syrup by dissolving sugar and water in a small saucepan. Set aside.
  2. Combine sliced lemons, sliced oranges, cloves, cinnamon sticks, red wine, and cranberry juice in a large saucepan. Cook over low heat for 30 minutes. Be careful not to boil your mixture! It needs to simmer on low heat.
  3. Remove the saucepan from the heat.
  4. Slowly stir in your sugar mixture until well combined.
  5. Pour cold, still water into your Sodacoo Sparkling Water Machine and fizz.
  6. Strain your mulled wine into a pitcher and top with sparkling water.
  7. Garnish your drink with cinnamon sticks for ultimate cosiness.
