Hot Mulled Wine or a Bishop (recipe)

grogdievca’s been sick and she’s been drinking fluids like a horse. Master has made her a mug of Rum Grog in the evenings – just to take the edge off and help her feel warm and cozy. (dark rum, lemon juice, whole cloves, brown sugar, hot water).

Having a warm libation reminded dievca of the mulled wine she would have in Maryland, years ago. It’s something she hasn’t found in NYC. So , she is determined to make it for herself when she feels better.


In her research, dievca learned that what she was actually drinking was a BISHOP — a type of mulled port. Here’s the recipe she is planning to try – it’s from – original source GOURMET.


YIELD: Makes 4 drinks


    • 1 navel orange
    • 8 whole cloves
    • 1 (750-ml) bottle Ruby Port


Put oven rack in middle position and preheat oven to 400°F.

    1. Stud orange with cloves and roast in a small shallow ceramic or glass baking dish until browned and soft, about 1 1/2 hours.
    2. Carefully quarter orange, then bring orange quarters and Port just to a simmer in a 2- to 2 1/2-quart saucepan. Remove from heat and serve warm.

The reviews are really positive and, yes, you do put the orange in at 400°F (about 200 Celsius) for 1.5 hours.  The orange caramelizes.

Let dievca know how it goes and CHEERS!

      You are correct — about two weeks after…I’m not as far ahead, right now. But, I do need to get on the Bishop (have the orange, cloves- but no port)
      I hope all is well and if it’s cold, enjoy a warm drink for me, ok? XO
