Gingerbread Mulling Spice Recipe combines the warm flavors of mulling spice with the spice of gingerbread to create a delightful winter mulling spice treat. This mulling spice infused recipe starts with a gluhwein reduction and uses that in the gingerbread recipe AND also in a picture perfect drizzle over the top!


For the Mulling Spice Reduction:

For the Gingerbread:

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup molasses
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup Mulling Spice reduction (cooled)


1. Prepare the Mulling Spice Reduction: In a saucepan, combine red wine and two Boozn Sam’s Glow Orange Mulling Spice infusion kits. Simmer over low heat for 20 – 25 minutes, until reduced by 1/3 to 1/2. Allow the reduction to cool. Toss out the spice bags.

2. Pour yourself a mug of mulling spice wine: You’ve worked hard and earned a reward. Pour yourself a 12 oz mug of gluhwein from the mulling spice reduction you just made. Add one of the candied oranges on a skewer, from the Boozn Sam’s infusion kit.

3. Prepare the Gingerbread: Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease and flour a gingerbread mold or 9 inch, square baking pan.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, ginger, cinnamon, and cloves.

In a large bowl, cream together the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy.

Add the molasses and eggs to the butter-sugar mixture, beating well after each addition.

Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined.

Finally, fold in 1 cup of the cooled mulling spice reduction until evenly incorporated.

4. Bake the Gingerbread: Pour the gingerbread batter into the prepared mold or pan.

Bake in the preheated oven for about 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Allow the gingerbread to cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely.

5. Mulling Spice Mix Glaze: Mix some powdered sugar with a little of the Glühwein reduction to make a glaze. Then drizzle the glaze over the cooled gingerbread.

6. Serve: Slice and serve the gingerbread mulling spice.

Enjoy your gingerbread mulling spice recipe, which combines the warm and spiced flavors of mulled wine!
