Alligator Soul’s Mulled Wine

Alligator Soul is quietly one of Savannah’s best.  Not only is the food outstanding every single time, but it is probably this cities most “adventurous” menu as well.  I’ve had antelope there, goat, rabbit and guinea hen.   Most of those for the first time and I enjoyed them.  If that’s a little too “out there” for you, have no fear.  There are plenty of other great dishes on their menus as well.   Thank you to Alligator Soul for participating in this year’s 12 Days of Christmas recipes and giving us a creative twist on wine for the holidays.

Alligator Soul’s Mulled Wine


  • 750ml Cabernet Wine
  • 1 Bay Leaf
  • 4 Sticks of Cinnamon
  • 5 Whole Star Anise
  • 1 tsp Whole Clove
  • 4 Sprigs Fresh Thyme
  • 1.5 cups Sugar
  • 3 oz. of Brandy
  • 3 oz. of Apple Cider


Bring all Ingredients to a low boil.  Lower heat and simmer for 15-20 minutes.  Take off of heat and let steep for another 15-20 minutes.  Serve gently warmed.

During the week, besides catching me on the nightly news, I participate in countless fundraisers and community events that take place in and around Savannah. On the weekend you’ll likely find me either tinkering with a new recipe or exploring something or somewhere with my family. During football season, you’ll find me parked in front of a TV-glass of red wine in hand-cheering on my Miami Dolphins or Hurricanes.
