Mulled Melissa 🎁

Mulled Melissa 

Holiday festivities are here and we are loving Mulled Melissa for the perfect holiday drink. We’ve taken our pyment, Melissa, blended her with cloves, cinnamon, orange peels, a number of other spices for this new take on a holiday classic. 

To make Mulled Melissa, here’s what you’ll need:

  • a bottle (or two!) of Melissa - available online or at certain locations in the Austin area
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 tsp of cloves
  • 2 star anise pods
  • 2 cardamom pods
  • 1/4 tsp all spice
  • 1 whole nutmeg
  • half a thumb of peeled ginger
  • 1 slice of orange rind
  • 1 slice of lemon rind

Directions: crush the nutmeg and cardamom pods to release the flavor. Put all ingredients, except for Melissa, in a cheese cloth. Place everything in a slow cooker or sauté pan and bring up to a steam - we recommend a crockpot so you can keep it on the warm setting. Steep for 10 minutes and serve.
