About the Recipe
To make mulled beer, start by pouring your favorite beer into a pot and heating it over low heat. Add in your desired spices and sweetener, stirring occasionally. Be careful not to let the beer boil, as this can ruin the flavor.
Once the spices and sweetener are fully incorporated, you can serve the mulled beer in mugs, garnished with cinnamon sticks or orange slices. This drink is perfect for sipping by the fire and enjoying with friends and family.
If you want to take your mulled beer to the next level, try experimenting with different types of beer and spices. Some popular variations include using dark beers like stouts or porters, or adding in herbs like rosemary or thyme for an extra layer of flavor. Cheers!
